Brooklyn artists and administrators - as well as other culture mavens - are interviewed by channel Thirteen President William Baker for a two-hour-long exploration of the New York area arts scene, "Setting The Stage."

Hosted by actress Cherry Jones, the episode will air April 13 at 8 pm, as part of the channel’s month-long "New York Arts Festival."

The show includes conversations with children’s book author Maurice Sendak ("Where the Wild Things Are"), pictured. The Brooklyn native discusses the impact of the Holocaust on his life’s work.

Also interviewed is Brooklyn Academy of Music President Karen Brooks Hopkins, who explains that BAM’s ever-widening scope of offerings is part of a vision of the institution as "a forum for ideas."

"Setting the Stage" also offers a glimpse of artist William Wegman - whose works are being shown in his "Funney/Str­ange" retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum now through May 28 - chatting in his studio.

The Brooklyn Museum is located at 200 Eastern Pkwy. at Washington Avenue in Prospect Heights. For more information, call (718) 638-5000.
