Chuck's Picks - "Project Art Show Series"

By Chuck Stern

Since the '90s, "Project Art Show Series" has covered NY's art scene with "wit and whimsy," and even though most episodes are still from the '90s, they retain a glow from that summery time, when independent artists could actually make a living here. Much of the work presented is as 'fringe' as the show itself - awkward, silly pieces that mix well with the odd editing and comic segments. Tune in for nostalgia and admire the art on both sides: first and third Mondays of every month at 10 PM on MNN2!

Tune in on Saturday, November 19th at 10:30am and Monday, November 21st at 4pm on MNN4 TWC 67, RCN 85, Verizon FiOS 36 and at http://mnn.org.

Chuck's Picks - "Harper's Bazzaro World"

A truly Bazzaro world: every Thursday night/Friday morning at 1:30 AM on MNN1!
