Staff Picks: A curated list of what to look at, listen to, watch, or read from the team at EAC

Exploring ways to stay engaged digitally, the staff at Erie Arts & Culture has launched a recurring blog series called Staff Picks. Every Wednesday, the EAC team will curate and share with you their top selections in the fields of books, music, movies, visual artists, and podcasts. Included in the lists are links so that you can experience staff recommendations directly through streaming or online purchases. We hope that this series also creates an opportunity for the public to develop a deeper understanding of the team members that comprise Erie Arts & Culture.
