About the Show

How can we keep the arts from dying of old age? That's the question an enterprising group of Providence, Rhode Island, artists asked themselves. They call themselves the AS220 Stink Tank, and their answer comes from studying the history of art and artists over the past 300 years and from their own observations of the very rich artist community as it has developed in Providence. We'll talk with the artists of AS220 Stink Tank this week on "Smart City."

Also with us is Boulder, Colorado Mayor Will Toor. This college town mayor is, himself, a college employee, serving as director of the University of Colorado Environmental Center. We'll talk to Mayor Toor about his new book, "Transportation and Sustainable Campus Communities."
