TCF Professor Nick Corrao and his students are featured in a UA Dialog article about their on-going documentary series on Alabama artists, Alabama Art Seen:
The state of Alabama is home to an ever-expanding community of artisans and performers, and part of Nicholas Corrao’s mission is to shine a spotlight on them.
Corrao, an instructor in the department of telecommunication and film, recently received a grant from the Alabama Council on the Arts to assist with the production of “Alabama Art Seen,” a program Corrao and his students produce for WVUA-TV, focusing on the arts in Alabama.
“The show is valuable in that it profiles artists living and working in Alabama,” Corrao said. “It’s not only a great resource for the public to see what’s happening in their state – and hopefully we’re introducing them to some things they didn’t know are happening – it’s also a great promotional tool, both for the state and the artists themselves.”
