Also, artists find inspiration to create in all kinds of circumstances and art can help us understand crises and loss. Host Jeremy Hobson talks about how artists create and how the art world is being affected by the coronavirus pandemic with Jonathan Fineberg, an art historian and critic. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now‘s May 6, 2020, full broadcast.
