Cut & Paste: What do you want in your arts and culture podcast?
You know what they say: You can’t spell Cut & Paste without “u.” OK, go ahead: groan. We're groaning with you. We know that no one says that. But seriously, we want to know what you want to hear in Cut & Paste, our arts and culture podcast . Not necessarily “who,” but what kinds of conversations and experiences do you want to be in on?
Cut & Paste: It's 'a very white-dominated field': Adrienne Davis advocates for diversity in the arts
Adrienne Davis teaches law but she regularly cross-examines the status quo in a completely different field: the arts. The Washington University law professor will receive an Arts Advocacy award from the Women of Achievement of St. Louis in a May 16 event at the Ritz-Carlton. The honor applauds her service on various boards including that of the St. Louis Art Museum and Opera Theatre of St. Louis. But it also extols her efforts to infuse more racial diversity into the artistic pipeline, from art-makers to gallery attendants to curators to institutional leaders. In our latest Cut & Paste arts and culture podcast , we talk with Davis about her advocacy and why it matters.
Cut & Paste: For Kat Reynolds, photography is about creating trust and being ‘super-present’
Photographer Kat Reynolds is having a moment. In the past few months, Reynolds has exhibited at five St. Louis venues. She was named this year’s Emerging Artist by the local Visionary Awards, a prize she’ll accept April 24 at the Sun Theater in Grand Center. She’s also wrapping up a residency program at Paul Artspace, north of Florissant. Her work primarily features young people of color, friends, people she encounters on the street, or people she finds through social media. Reynolds works all these activities around a full-time customer relations job. In our latest Cut & Paste podcast , we catch up with this busy artist, who strives to genuinely connect with her subjects.

Cut & Paste: Artists to St. Louis’ next mayor: Show us the money and the love
When St. Louis’ next mayor takes office, local artists will be waiting. They’ve got a list of things they want the mayor — likely Lyda Krewson — to do in support of the arts. They presented their ideas to mayoral candidates in a recent forum presented by Citizen Artist St. Louis. Their goals include a living wage, more artists at the table when economic development plans are decided and recognition of artists’ economic contributions. In our latest Cut & Paste arts and culture podcast, we talk with local artists about their expectations as voters and constituents, as well as creative professionals. Here’s some of what you’ll hear in the podcast: Artist MK Stallings, on the city’s priorities: “The city of St. Louis does a great job of getting behind its sports franchises and things of that nature but I don’t really see the city of St. Louis doing much to support the arts. Artist/activist De Nichols, about the impact of the arts: “The arts generate so much economic opportunity within
