KLRU is pleased to announce that the Kodosky Foundation has renewed its support of Arts In Context, our local arts series, with a $5,000 grant.
Arts In Context celebrates Austin’s vibrant diversity while promoting cross-organizational collaboration, innovation, arts accessibility and cultural tourism. The series helps KLRU achieve its vision to present quality multimedia content that engages people in the thoughtful exchange of ideas, expression of the arts, and enjoyable lifelong learning, resulting in a more vibrant community and higher quality of life.
Arts In Context is a “win” four times over: it brings the magic of local arts productions to viewers; Austin-based arts organizations that partner with us gain exposure and build name-recognition; Austin’s reputation for thriving, creative culture is strengthened; and affiliate PBS stations gain access to new content.
We are thrilled to continue a partnership with the Kodosky Foundation in support of these goals. Thank you!
KLRU continues the station’s commitment to showcasing the arts in Central Texas with a new episode of Arts In Context focusing on visual arts. The show airs on Thursday, April 28, at 7:30 p.m.; Sunday, May 1, at 4 p.m.; Monday, May 2, at 9:30 p.m. on KLRU.
