On Episode 65 of No Rain Date, we’re joined by William B. Crow, Ph.D., who is Director of Lehigh University Art Galleries (LUAG) as well as a professor of practice at the school. Dr. Crow shares details about his professional background, which has included work at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. When the coronavirus pandemic began in March 2020, museums were among the most impacted facilities, due to the number of people they bring together indoors. Dr. Crow explains how Lehigh’s expansive gallery system adapted in order to safely continue displaying art without boundaries. Among the adaptations have been online programming and an outdoor exhibit timed to coincide with the presidential election, “Doing Democracy,” along the South Bethlehem Greenway. We also learn more from him about plans for a recent $5 million gift to LUAG.

Among the latest headlines is one about a new restaurant serving a distinctive style of pizza in Stockertown, The Goat Pub & Pie, and an op-ed by Saucon Source teen columnist James Townsend about the controversy surrounding U.S. gymnast Simone Biles’ withdrawal from the Tokyo Olympics.
