Marilyn JS Goodman & Victoria Riskin

February 9, 2020

Young children seem instinctively to enjoy scribbling and drawing, but this love of art-making seems to vanish in their teens. Why? That is just one of the questions we will ask tonight on Inquiry when we talk with MARILYN JS GOODMAN. She is an art and museum education specialist who has served as Director of Education for the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Director of the Children’s Museum of Cincinnati; and the Director of k-12 Art for the Worcester Public Schools. Her new book is a colorful overlook at children and their art-making: “CHILDREN DRAW: A GUIDE TO WHY, WHEN AND HOW CHILDREN MAKE ART.”

In this episode of  Inquiry, we talk with writer and producer VICTORIA RISKIN. She has written a wonderful memoir of her parents: legendary screen actress Fay Wray and award-winning screenwriter Robert Riskin. Not only is this book an account of a great love story, it is also an insider’s look at how the Hollywood studio system worked in the 30’s and 40s. Tune in and find out how Kong’s heartthrob met and fell in love with the author of It Happened One Night. Victoria Riskin’s book is titled:FAY WRAY AND ROBERT RISKIN: A HOLLYWOOD MEMOIR.”
