Podcast

Gallerygap cover 0
The Figge Art Museum has partnered with WVIK and Augustana College's Teaching Museum of Art to produce a podcast focusing on underrepresented populations in art galleries across the world, and in our community.

Melissa Mohr, director of Education at the Figge, and Claire Kovacs, former director of the Augustana Teaching Museum of Art, hosted 20 episodes of the Gallery Gap (2017). Produced by Lacy Scarmana.

Support for The Gallery Gap on WVIK came from Pederson Paetz Design and the estate of Margaret Skinner, a long time friend of WVIK and lover of the arts. People can stream from WVIK and it’s also available on iTunes or Google Play.
