Filmmakers from all over the world have participated in the creation of films developed at and/or commissioned by RPI’s arts juggernaut; the latest five dance films [...]

    Jack Hanna’s Into the Wild Live

      How in the world did an Ohio zookeeper become so darn famous? Judging from his appearances on TV over the years, from his too-many-to-count visits with David Letterman to his own Emmy-winning, syndicated nature show Into the Wild, Hanna’s appeal is a folksy mix of solid expertise, goofy charm and irresistible critters. Tomorrow (Friday), [...]

  • Tim Reynolds

      Tim Reynolds is a wizard. Forget for a second that he’s the lead guitarist in Dave Matthews Band. (Although he did encourage a younger Matthews—who tended bar at a venue in Charlottesville, Va., where he performed—to pursue his music career in the ’90s. He also introduced him to most of his original band members, [...]
