Hosted by Marie LaBrosse and Dee Dee Gozion.

Arts are good for business, an eye-opening journey into the creative world of art in S. Sarasota and Charlotte counties and around the world. From prehistoric cave paintings to modern day films, art has served as a vessel for storytelling and conveying mankind’s relationship with its environment. Traveling together we will explore the world of behind the scenes where the artists and business people create for our enjoyment. Major constituents of the arts include literature – including poetry, novels and short stories, and epics; performing arts – among them music, dance, and theater; culinary arts such as baking, chocolatiering, and wine-making; media arts like photography and cinematography, and visual arts – including drawing, painting, ceramics, and sculpting. Some art forms combine a visual element with performance (e.g. film) and the written word (e.g. comics).
