While next month’s Gilmore International Keyboard Festival is all about celebrating what pianos can do, it's not often that we examine what they are made of. 

The festival has partnered with the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts to present the photography exhibition "Inside Steinway," a series of images of the inside of the storied piano factory, shot by photographer Christopher Payne.

Photos from the exhibit Calling Michigan Home will be at the upcoming Kalamazoo Institute of Arts holiday sale. The exhibit shows ten photographers’ different perspectives on Michigan’s many landscapes.

A bill that makes photographing rural or industrial property illegal passed in the Indiana state senate yesterday. The South Bend Tribune reports the issue now moves to the house. Activists have criticized the bill, arguing the legislation makes it easier for big companies to hide workplace injustices and animal cruelty. Proponents of the bill say it protects farmers’ privacy.
