Regional Artists Take the Spotlight on WTVP

She carves egg shells. He handcrafts cars. She turns vintage quilts into signature jewelry. He turns molten sand into towering glass sculptures. Throw in a blacksmith, a composer, a few painters, printers, sculptors and more, and you get a wide variety of artists with one important thing in common: they are all making their art work in and for Illinois…and beyond.

WTVP is celebrating the contributions of local artists to Illinois’ culture and economy with a series of interstitial programming called Art In The Works. Each of the 27 short programs was shot in high definition by the WTVP Production team, and edited by Senior Producer Todd Pilon.

“Art In The Works” is a collaboration of WTVP and ArtsPartners of Central Illinois and its members, and was made possible by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
