On this week's show:

In 2013, more than 60 employees left the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design. That’s just one of the many shakeups the college has experienced since 2010. CPR arts reporter Corey Jones investigates how the college is adapting to changes in the higher education landscape.

Denver-based film writer, producer and director Adam Lipsius shares his experiences of working with The Asylum, a Hollywood studio, on a disaster movie called “Asteroid vs. Earth.”

In this month's Book Club segment, award-winning Colorado authors Lisa Jones, Peter Heller and Helen Thorpe discuss titles by César Aira, Timothy Egan and Veronica Roth.

The Ars Nova Singers, one of Colorado’s leading choral ensembles, performs Friday in Boulder and Saturday evening in Denver. The ensemble gave CPR an exlusive preview of Joseph Goodhew's "Ave Maria," one of three winning works in Ars Nova's latest Colorado Composers Competition.

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.
