Mark Rothko and the Harvard Murals | Bad Ideas #53

When Harvard commissioned Mark Rothko to paint a mural for their new building it probably seemed like a good idea. But shortly after the famous artist delivered his work the brilliant colors had already begun to fade. Why? That's the story we're telling this week on Bad Ideas.

May 5: Mark Rothko, Sera Cahoone, Women in Tech, Chris Coleman

OPB's State of Wonder

Had enough of the status quo? This week’s wonders are shaking it up: the greatest modern artist who ever called Portland home, a director who set the bar higher, two friends turning fan-favorite songs upside down, and ladies calling time’s up on tech.

Painfully Honest Job Descriptions for Women in Tech — 1:15

Backfence PDX is about to welcome some storytellers from the tech world to the MainStage for an evening of home truths on May 12. #MeToo isn’t just limited to Silicon Valley. We heard about this in 2016 when we welcomed one of the Backfence storytellers, Megan Bigelow, to our studio. Along with friends Kasey Jones and Amanda Brooks, they helped us rewrite job descriptions for women in the industry. All three say they’re in good places with their current employers, but some of their past experiences at other firms, from start-ups to big players, were truly hair-raising.
Rothko in Portland — 10:08

This week, Oregon Art Beat premiers a new documentary about a painter who was, arguably, the greatest modern artist ever to call Oregon home. Mark Rothko flew in the face of convention and ultimately helped create a new American vanguard, but his early years as an immigrant kid in Portland were a hard education. We talk with producer Eric Slade about Rothko’s Portland roots, and the experiences that influenced his visual vocabulary.

Sera Cahoone Flora String Sessions — 16:43

There’s a simple honesty to the music of Seattle singer-songwriter Sera Cahoone. Her songs tell intimate stories about love and loss, where acoustic guitar and Cahoone’s voice are complimented by the steady percussion that is a holdover from her days as the drummer for Seattle’s Band of Horses and the occasional cello, piano or country-tinged slide guitar. It’s hard to imagine that her twist on Americana needs any embellishment, but while she was touring with the multi-instrumentalist Alex Guy, they had an idea: Guy would arrange full strings for a number of Cahoone’s songs for a big upcoming concert. What started as a one-off show has grown into the new album “The Flora String Sessions.”

Chris Coleman Says Goodbye to Portland Center Stage — 26:48

After 19 seasons, the artistic director of Portland Center Stage is leaving for a new job in Denver. Chris Coleman brought the city’s largest company to new heights, carving out programming space for original works as well as new interpretations of classics, while midwifing the renovation of the Armory into a new multi-stage venue. He also had a busy side hustle advocating with state and local governments for arts funding. Coleman stopped in to talk to Think Out Loud’s Dave Miller about his time in Portland.

What Do You Get When You Mix Opera And Stripping?

Christopher Rothko on Sharing His Father's Art with the Portland Art Museum + The Museum Hires a New NW Curator - 5:38

Mark Rothko is one of the 20th century’s most famous painters, and his formative years were spent in Portland: he immigrated here at age 10 from Latvia and took classes at the Museum School at the Portland Art Museum before graduating from Lincoln High School. In October, the museum announced plans for the Rothko Pavilion, a new multi-story glass structure. The art museum also announced a partnership with Rothko’s children to cycle his works through the museum on a rotating basis.

opbmusic Session with Singer-Songwriter Sara Jackson-Holman - 13:00

Sara Jackson-Holman's second album, "Didn’t Go to the Party," charts the arc of a romantic relationship and breakup set to a lush backdrop of strings and her own classically-trained piano. Jackson-Holman’s songs have appeared in TV shows like "Grey’s Anatomy," "Castle," and "Orange is the New Black."

American Legion Post 134 Drafts New War Stories - 19:37

Nationally, American Legion membership is shrinking, but one hall in Northeast Portland found revival by becoming an oasis of community and expression, where veterans rub shoulders with queer kids, and street people mix with art curators.

Music in a Time of War - 26:21

In the new book, "My Music, My War: The Listening Habits of U.S. Troops in Iraq and Afghanistan," UO English professor Lisa Gilman discovers what soldiers listen to in times of strife — from heavy metal to Sarah McLaughlin — and how music and the methods of listening to music during war have changed over time.

New National Guard Armory Is a Model of Architecture - 32:41

Many of Oregon’s National Guard armories are old, barely functioning, and sorely need of safety updates, but Oregon also has a couple of new armories—now called National Guard Readiness Centers. The newest one, the Colonel James Nesmith Readiness Center for the 162nd Engineer Company of the Oregon National Guard in Dallas Oregon, also has great architecture.

Imago's Ambitious New Puppet Musical Puts a Steampunk Spin on 'Beauty and the Beast' - 40:50

Internationally famous for their masked theater shows "Frogz" and "ZooZoo," Imago Theatre has unveiled its mammoth new production — the hard work of four years and around $250,000. "A story within a story within a ship" is the tagline for the new production, "La Belle," which runs through Jan. 9. It is the story of two strangers in the engine room of a 1920's steamship who re-tell the story of Beauty and the Beast through puppetry, shadow theater and song. Of course, their budding love comes to mirror the "tale as old as time" they tell each other.

Nu Shooz Is Back: Older, Wiser, and Funkier - 44:54

Somewhere in the world right now, chances are the '80s hit “I Can’t Wait” is playing. The Portland band Nu Shooz, consisting of husband and wife John Smith and Valerie Day, released it some 30 years ago to almost instant global success. Earlier this year, the pair slipped back into the Nu Shooz name to put out a new album, " and they stopped by OPB to play some songs live.
