Tune into CPR's weekly arts show, hosted by Chloe Veltman, for in-depth coverage of the Colorado culture scene. 

On this week's show:

With the City of Boulder launching its very first arts week this weekend, Chloe interviews the organizers of Boulder Arts Week and Denver Arts Week – Emily K. Harrison and Jayne Buck, respectively – about the rationale behind the "arts week" concept.

CPR arts reporter Corey Jones explores an unusual new partnership between the Colorado Rockies and the Colorado Symphony, and standup comedian Adam Cayton-Holland explains how he's persuaded Denver's baseball team to let him throw out the first pitch before the April 7 game at Coors Field.  

In the first of a new series about the art of storytelling, "The Narrators: Second Listen," storytellers Andrew Orvedahl and Robert Rutherford explore the nebulous nature of truth in true-life narratives.

CPR captures three actors from the Denver Center Theatre Company's new production of The Marx Brothers' "Animal Crackers" rehearsing a segment of the zany show on stage at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. 

CPR's arts show airs on Fridays at 10.30 a.m. and 7.30 p.m. Tune in live or access online at anytime.
