Damian Woetzel’s tenure as director of the Aspen Institute Arts Program is slowly coming to a close. He was named president of the Juilliard School in May. Arts reporter Claire Woodcock caught up with Woetzel during the 2017 Aspen Ideas Festival to talk about his overarching mission with both institutions.

On this week’s Curated, the visionary behind the new dystopian play “Building The Wall,” Robert Schenkkan discusses his motive and intention behind its rapid worldwide roll out. Then, journalist and podcast co-host of “In The Thick” Julio Ricardo Varela joins in analyzing the play’s impact on today’s society.
