The role of art in social discourse

"The Painter's Daughter"
Frank Anigbo
"The Painter's Daughter"

Art can reflect, comment, inspire, and entertain. Art can also offend and alienate. What is the role of art in society? How do we ensure there is room for all voices and perspectives? And how does the need for arts funding tip the scales toward certain audiences or viewpoints? On The Point, we talk about these topics with our guests: Jung Ho Pak, artistic director and conductor of Cape Symphony, Marita Rivero, former general manager of WGBH TV and Radio, and Cape Cod painter Frank Anigbo. Mindy Todd hosts.
