Students often describe being up all night as “the all-nighter.” And who among us who’ve faced a deadline of any sort can’t relate to being awake until 5 a.m. doing something you intended to finish the day before. We stopped by the Kansas City Art Institute for some stories from students who’ve been up all night creating art.
KCUR listeners may know that our producer and regular co-host Sylvia Maria Gross is on maternity leave. But this Up All Night show theme was her idea, so we felt we had to include her somehow. Sylvia and her husband, Bill Elder, had baby Rosa Mina just a month ago. We thought their overnight experience would take us to a scene all new parents will recognize.
