We speak with Amy Wynn, Executive Director of the Northwest Connecticut Arts Council, about their 3rd Annual Open Your Eyes Art Studio Tour.

Federal investigators say they are launching a public awareness campaign that could include billboards and television ads to help solve the 1990 art heist from Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.

The campaign could go international and is expected to be similar to the operation that led to the capture of James "Whitey" Bulger.

The Boston Globe reports the campaign will reintroduce the public to the 13 stolen masterpieces, including works by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Degas, and Manet, and try to solicit information concerning their whereabouts.

Mary Anne Lee, Executive Director and Lydia Kukoff, board member and co-chair of Hidden Gardens, join us to talk about all of the excellent events coming up at the Spencertown Academy Arts Center.
