CHEYANN NEADES, HOST: When you look at a piece of art placed on a shelf, or watch the Nutcracker ballet, do you think of how they came to be? How curious are you about the artists behind the scenes?

FATIMA CALDERON CERON, HOST: On Midwest Uprising, we’re here to talk with artists of color around the Midwest. We’ll talk about how they found their passions, the history behind this work, and why representation in this region is so important.
