Storytellers Project show featuring stories about the arts

Two singer-songwriters. An Emmy Award-winning writer and performer. A national film critic. And a filmmaker known for creating stories with strong Indigenous female leads.

Art is all around us and this event explores the creatives behind the culture, as USA TODAY delivers an hour of true, first-person stories as part of the Storytellers Project’s show, “I Made This: Stories about the Arts.”

“I hope that people can get an understanding of how much my current album, ‘Heart Theory,’ has been a turning point for me in my career, and who I am as a person,” said storyteller Lindsay Ell, a 31-year old Canadian country singer living in Nashville.

The show will be held at 4 p.m. PT/7 p.m. ET on March 16. Register in advance to receive a reminder at https://www.storytellersproject.com/all-events and watch on the Storytellers Project’s Facebook page, YouTube channel or website.

Officials have been noticeably quiet, however, about Polo’s shady past, which includes a prison term following his embroilment in a $130 million art-fraud lawsuit. The Spanish government has agreed to insure the collection and provide the exhibition space and an annual budget in return for a 15-year loan of nearly 450 works from Polo’s modern and contemporary art trove.
