Art Talk AM on the Radio is a weekly radio show in conjunction with the Portland State University MFA Monday Night Lecture Series. Visiting artists are interviewed live on the air the day of their lecture. Interviews are conducted by the students of the PSU Master in Fine Art Program.
During the summer months, Art Talk AM runs independent of the PMNLS, instead focusing on Portland area artists and curators.
