Tonight on Inquiry we speak with NICK CAPASSO, Director of the Fitchburg Art Museum and artist JUAN JOSÉ BARBOZA-GUBO. Barboza-Gubo’s stunning installation “Pink Narcissus” will be at the Fitchburg Art Museum for most of this summer. Tune in and learn about his beautiful and complex sculptures and paintings, which use a variety of materials like metal, crystal and even blood to express complex ideas of metamorphosis and the transformation of the self and body. To see examples of Barboza-Gubo’s amazing works, go to his website: http://barboza-gubo.com/artwork/3343135.html

Photographer and teacher ROBERT DAWSON traveled across the United States for 18 years photographing public libraries. What he found were unique, vibrant institutions that were crucial to their local communities. Some libraries were huge and imposing edifices built over a hundred years ago while other were single room make shift buildings. Too many have recently been closed. Dawson’s book THE PUBLIC LIBRARY: A PHOTOGRAPHIC ESSAY collects some of his most interesting photographs and combines them with essays written by people like Bill Moyers and Anne Patchett. Tune in tonight and celebrate these wonderful centers for knowledge and community.
