This week on Arts Upload, what do Paris, New York and Kansas City have in common? They will be the only cities to host the Plains Indians: Artists of Earth & Sky exhibit. Randy Mason was at the Nelson-Atkins to get a sneak peek as the exhibit was being installed and talks to curator Gaylord Torrence. Also this week, John McGrath takes us to the Kansas City air guitar championship. Julie Denesha introduces us to Violet Brumley Hensley, a 97-year-old musician and fiddle maker know as the "Stadivarius of the Ozarks, and examines her mentorship relationship with bluegrass fiddler Betse Ellis. The first installment of My Favorite Fountain takes us to Volker Memorial Fountain. And finally, Jared Bowen from WGBH in Boston gives us a look at the artistry and ingenuity of America's first furniture makers. Hosts Randy Mason and Maris Aylward set up this week's segments from the Kansas City Repertory Theatre which celebrates its 50th season this fall.
