About Arts 
Since 1986, the Arts Department at WKCR has been bringing listeners topical information about cultural events in the New York City area via interviews with artists. WKCR represents all art forms, from film and literature, to theatre and the visual arts. As of March 2006, listeners have had the opportunity to learn more about the arts in New York City almost every night after 9 pm. The department has a tradition of in-depth programming and will keep striving to expose our listeners to underappreciated talent.

Our Programs
Studio A and Art Waves feature hour-long audio recordings of works of literature, poetry, and essays. Arts & Answers broadcasts in half-hour segments with one or more artists discussing a particular art exhibit, art form, or work of art. Occasionally, Studio A and Art Waves feature longer conversations with an artist or artists or lectures related art. Similarly, Arts and Answers occasionally features audio literary recordings.
