Using germs to make art

Zachary Copfer is making some pretty unusual art using unconventional means. Like it implies, his "Bacteriography" involves developing images in plates of bacteria. The microbiologist turned visual artist makes use of E. coli bacteria and S.marcescens and then treats them with the DNA from jellyfish. The University of Cincinnati graduate got nationwide press last year when he first unveiled his works at a Cincinnati art show.

Nationally-known librarian Nancy Pearl

You may have heard Nancy Pearl during one of her appearances on NPR’s Morning Edition where she opines about all things books. A former librarian, she is the creator of the first community-wide reading program back in 1998, which led the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County to undertake their On the Same Page effort. As part of the wrap-up to this year’s On the Same Page, Nancy Pearl will appear via Skype at the downtown branch of the library on Saturday, March 23 at 2:00pm. But first, she joins Mark Perzel by phone to talk about the origins of community reading programs, her lifelong love of books, and her incredibly popular Librarian Action figure.

Musician and Artist, Dick Waller

Dick Waller is a familiar face and name around the Cincinnati music community. He was the principal clarinetist for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra for many years, and during that time, he founded the Linton Chamber Music Series. But what many did not know was that, starting in 1974, he began painting as a stress reliever from his work with the symphony. Now, in retirement, he’s decided to begin exhibiting his paintings. Sunday afternoon will be the opening of Music at an Exhibition, showcasing over 100 of his works, at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center. Dick Waller is in our studio with Mark Perzel to talk about his passion for painting and why he is now ready to share them with the rest of the community.
