State of the Arts NYC is a weekly radio show on WBAI radio, 99.5FM, where various sectors of NYC’s arts worlds converge to report and analyze the dynamic state of the arts and its participants. Hosted by Savona Bailey-McClain, long-time Executive Director of the West Harlem Art Fund (WHAF), she confronts, analyzes and celebrates victories, challenges and changes in the country’s dynamic creative capital. Reports from the field; from the far-flung fringes; from center stage and from behind the scenes—the host Savona Bailey-McClain draws on her 20 years’ in the trenches to bring you snapshot after snapshot in living color. State of the Arts NYC airs on WBAI FM Radio Fridays from 5-6 p.m.
This Week Savona Bailey-McClain interviews gallerist Anke Kempkes and gallerist Gavin Brown about their individual ventures in Harlem, NYC.
