A Sly View

Spark visits with artists who use humor and wit to engage, intrigue and expand the frontiers of creativity.

First, Keith Knight draws from experience as a cartoonist and finds time to hit the stage to front a hip hop band.

Then, electronic sculpture artist Andrew Kleindolph constructs machines that defy logic or function for the sake of building something that might not have existed otherwise.

And find improv group 3 For All "on a stage with no rules," as they perform without scripts, format, or preconceptions.

And finally, rendezvous with Toychestra, an all-woman ensemble who jam out with a wide array of children's toys and instruments.
