CET: Art in Isolation: Jody Jones

Local PBS show highlights UC alumnus musician Jody Jones

Southwest Ohio PBS affiliate CET featured University of Cincinnati alumnus Jody Jones on its program, "The Art Show," in a new series about artists in the age of COVID-19.

"Art in Isolation" looks at how artists and their artforms have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and how have they adapted to the situation. Musician, producer and engineer Jody Jones, aka GrandAce, is a 2019 graduate of UC's College-Conservatory of Music. He shared how he's staying productive — and positive — during this unique time.

"I've turned to art as a form of escape," Jones says. "So now that I'm forced to sit down and slow down, I can take the time to really reflect and analyze not just what I've made, but everything that's out there in the world."
