On this week's show:

Chloe interviews stylist and fashion writer Georgia Alexia Benjou and designer Stephanie Ohnmacht about Colorado's burgeoning fashion industry and the challenges facing designers working in Colorado today.

CPR arts reporter Corey Jones provides the lowdown on the Denver Actors Fund, an organization that helps performing arts professionals in Denver struggling with healthcare issues.

In the latest installment of "Yes, But Is It Art?", our ongoing series that looks at opposing views on cultural matters, Chloe explores the difference between teaching beginners to take their first dance steps versus coaching advanced students who are polishing their practice.

Poet Michael Henry drops into the CPR studio to share a poem from "Gone West," a new collaboration involving Henry's words, music by songwriter/cellist Ian Cooke and movement by Denver's Wonderbound dance company. 

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