Scandinavian art and music will be featured when the radio program "Know the Score LIVE!" is broadcast 5-7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 26, from the University of Iowa Museum of Art's Lasansky Gallery and the Nancy and Craig Willis Atrium.
The program, part of the weekly arts and humanities series hosted by Joan Kjaer, can be heard at that time on radio station KSUI, 91.7 FM (101.7 FM in Dubuque).
