This week on State of the Arts, meet jazz master, keyboardist Chick Corea, who died in February of 2020. State of the Arts met Chick in 2018, along with bass powerhouse Christian McBride and drummer Brian Blade as they performed music from their Grammy-winning CD Trilogy at NJPAC. Willie Cole makes playful yet haunting work using irons, ironing boards, shoes, and plastic water bottles. We visit his exhibition “Beauties,” and see him at work at the Pingry School where he makes a giant out of plastic bottles. At the Morris Museum, an exhibition of kinetic art featuring 12 Steampunk artists inspired by 19th-century industrial design, steam engines, and futuristic themes from the past. Plus, a master class at Two River Theater on the art of the stage fight.

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.
