Arts Unlimited

ARTS UNLIMITED, set to debut in October 2017, is a new show on WLTV that tells the stories of creative artists around the Ohio Valley. Each episode will spotlight an artist’s work be it sculpture, music, painting, dance, theater, etc.

AU strives to depict artists as they interact with their work and with the culture and economy of the greater Ohio Valley, West Virginia, and beyond. AU will give you a glimpse at the work of these artists as well as the tremendous amount of work behind the work.

“One of the most rewarding parts of this job is seeing 18-year-olds blossom into budding young artists who have a voice in the world of theatre. These two have grown so much in the last year that it is almost like they are different people. I am terribly proud of them as people and as student-directors.”
