Green Room Artist Feature: Joanna Beard

Talented local artist Joanna Beard is featured in the KPR Green Room this month with her paintings that truly inspire whimsy in us all. Joanna is an artist and musician who graduated from Sterling College. She grew up in Lawrence and you can see her art displayed all around galleries in Lawrence throughout the year. Most recently her pieces were featured at The Roost.

Teenage Rebellion Night ​at Cinema a Go-Go

First a blizzard/ice storm cancelled our night of Teenage Rebellion and now a pandemic. We are thinking Date Bait and High School Confidential may not be meant to hit the big screen at Liberty Hall again just yet. Unfortunately, due to health and safety concerns for our listeners, members, sustainers, and Cinema a Go-Go fans, we have decided to cancel the April 10 Cinema a Go-Go. We will keep you all updated on the next available date.

And the Winner of the 2nd Annual KPR Mug Design Contest...

Thank you to everyone who submitted an entry into the 2nd Annual KPR Mug Design Contest. The KPR staff was overjoyed with the talent that comes forward in these contests. We had 29 unique designs entered into the competition; KPR selected our top 5 and then 1,249 of you voted, selecting Daniele Green as our winner.

Kaye McIntyre: Hero of Studio B

KPR Presents host Kaye McIntyre spent most of her spare time in February in KPR's Studio B helping with the live assist from NPR's coverage of the impeachment, and later in the month, the primaries and caucuses on KPR2. Kaye spent so much time in KPR's Studio B that soon the office was making jokes about her new residence. We interviewed Kaye and asked about her experience during this time.

Bad Science at Cinema a Go-Go, February 7

Mad scientists, crawling hands and disembodied heads take over our next Cinema a Go-Go on Friday, February 7, at Liberty Hall.

Our big double feature includes The Crawling Hand (1963), a memorably awful science fiction thriller about the hand of an astronaut who dies in space. Apparently possessed by an alien life form(?), the crawling hand falls to Earth and promptly starts strangling people left and right.

KPR Conference Room Features Works from Local Artist Jen Gabriele

KPR's conference room is featuring work by local artist Jen Gabriele. Jen's work is a fan favorite around the Kansas Public Radio office. After she had won second place in the 2019 KPR Mug Design Contest, KPR had Jen re-imagine the design to fit our new KPR T-shirts and made a bumper sticker with her original design.
