Coming to you from one of Seattle's best-kept secrets, Art Zone explores The Ruins, a private supper club tucked away in the Uptown neighborhood. Host Nancy Guppy sits down with director Tim Bond, in town for the staging of Seattle Rep's The Piano Lesson. Northwest African American Museum's Rosanna Sharpe stops by to talk about Funky Turns 40, a touring exhibition of black animation art from 1970's Saturday morning cartoons. Plus, hear from guitar guru Rob Hampton on how he landed his dream job teaching guitar.  The show is topped off with a memorable performance by the Sam Boshnack Quintet from the fantastical Ruins ballroom.
