This week on State of the Arts… The image of Angela Davis was a lightning rod for both the left and the right in the early 1970s. An exhibit at the Zimmerli Art Museum explores her visual and political legacy through rare archival material and the work of artists from the ‘70s to today. State of the Arts profiles American Repertory Ballet’s new artistic director Ethan Stiefel, one of the most celebrated dancers and choreographers in the world. And Fort Lee’s Ara Dinkjian, one of the world’s most sought-after players of the oud, has a band of Armenian, Macedonian and Turkish musicians with a mission of pursuing peace through music.

State of the Arts goes on location with the most creative people in New Jersey… tune in every week on NJ PBS, WNET, and ALL ARTS.
