Fresh from Emmy win, KLRU’s “Arts in Context” launches new season

KLRU-TV’s arts documentary series “Arts in Context” just last week netted two Lone Star Emmy awards.

On Thursday its fifth season launches with the premiere episode “Rebirth,” on Austin’s experimental indie folk band Les Rav and its lead singer Lauren Burton.

The 30-minute “Arts in Context” airs Thursday nights with new episodes rolled out each month.

The fifth season also trains its lens on theater troupe the Rude Mechanicals, the Austin Bike Zoo, Blue Lapis Light aerial dance, clothing designer Gail Chovan and indie classical music purveyors Golden Hornet Project, among other creative efforts.
