On Inquiry tonight, we speak with Francis Cape, teacher, artist and wood carver about his book We Sit Together: Utopian Benches from the Shakers to the Separatists of Zoar. Cape created 20 benches modeled after bunches used in various utopian and intentional communities sects in America including the Shakers, the Harmony Society and the Oneida Perfectionists. These beautiful works speak to the importance of community and collective ownership. Tune in and learn how these benches were exhibited, how Cape researched his work and about a few of the utopian groups.

Tonight on Inquiry we sit down with Zachariah Combs, the new Director of the Gallery of African Art in Clinton, MA. Tune in and learn about this wonderful new gallery, upcoming programs and even hear Zach on the n’goni. The website for the gallery is: http://www.galleryofafricanart.org/
