Here’s the info for today’s State of the Arts web update: November 2, 3 & 6, 2014


We look back on the life and career of one of New Jersey’s most famous poets: Amiri Baraka. He appeared on State of the Arts NJ multiple times in the last 30 years and our story features clips from these interviews and performances. Plus, a husband-and-wife filmmaking team from Newark create a portrait of their hometown in 3D, now featured at the Newark International Airport. And SOPAC, the South Orange Performing Arts Center, is a destination for Americana music. State of the Arts NJ was there for a sold-out show from the Cowboy Junkies, who burst onto the indie music scene in 1988 with their critically acclaimed album, “The Trinity Session.”
