Jonathan Bartlett comes from a small-town-Pennsylvania childhood and landed as an adult in vivacious Brooklyn, NY. Along the way, Bartlett has come into his own as an illustrator recognized for his ability to tell stories, which we also hold near and dear to our hearts at NPR.
So when it came to selecting artists for the NPR Wall Calendar, Bartlett was a natural fit. He said that public radio not only educates, but has often "made me think differently, or given me an idea. It nurtures free thinking and innovative dreams."
KUAR will offer live, anchored coverage of President Obama’s address to the nation Tuesday night when he will make his case for military action against Syria.
Coverage will begin at 8 p.m.

We often catch people saying (or typing), "I heard it on NPR." This is pretty edifying feedback for an organization who's mission is to create a more informed public.
Artist and listener Leigh Guldig took this familiar saying, added her own creative expression and turned it into a piece of art for the newest NPR Wall Calendar. She said NPR "serves as an 'idea-generator,' an inspiration and visionary force for the entire country."
