Ben Munson visits said place, Red Dragon TV studio, in a revealing Isthmus piece about founder Ari John White Wolf's passion for local music.
In 77 Square's fine-arts department, Lindsay Christians profiles Trent Miller, whose work is currently on display at the Overture Center's Watrous Gallery, and reviews Ellsworth Kelly's show of prints at MMOCA.
In Isthmus, Jennifer A. Smith declares that two exhibitions currently at the Chazen Museum of Art are "essential viewing." [http://www.thedailypage.com/isthmus/article.php?article=38806]
And as local theater begins to pick back up, Madison Magazine's Liberal Arts blog offers this preview of Forward Theater Company's just-opened Collected Stories.
Lastly, with an intimidatingly diverse UW Cinematheque season getting started this weekend, 77 Square's Rob Thomas focuses in on the spaghetti westerns on Cinematheque's schedule.
