With inspiration stemming from his boyhood along the shores of Lake Michigan to his Kentucky home near Land Between the Lakes, Murray artist Dale Daniel Leys is fascinated by space and the science of life. The work of this teacher and visual artist is featured in the latest in KET’s Kentucky Muse series, “Dale Daniel Leys: Drawing Life,” airing Wednesday, April 16 at 9:30/8:30 pm on KET2.

Leys started drawing as a toddler and his talent for art was obvious from a very young age. Seagull skulls and fish bones from along Lake Michigan soon made their way into his drawings, subjects that still captivate him today.
In addition, Leys completes onsite drawings and watercolors in the western and southwest United States, Italy and the Czech Republic. A Murray State University professor since 1977, Leys has inspired many students who have become art teachers, gallery owners and artists.

Think Wednesday

KET’s Wednesdays feature nature, science and technology

Beginning tonight, you can tune in each week to “Think Wednesday,” a primetime line-up of nature, science and technology programs from PBS.

“Think Wednesday” kicks off with Nature’s “My Bionic Pet” at 8/7 pm on KET. Left without fins, flippers, beaks or tails from disease, accidents or human cruelty, some animals face seemingly insurmountable obstacles to survive. Prosthetic parts made possible by the latest engineering and technology can provide what disabled animals need, and scientists are finding that innovations created in the process can benefit humans, as well.

Next up is Nova’s “Inside Animal Minds: Bird Genius” at 9/8 pm on KET. Researchers are discovering that creatures other than humans have mastered skills such as making and using tools, solving complex problems, and planning for the future. Nova tests the limits of some of the planet’s brainiest birds, searching for the secrets of a problem-solving mind.

The third “Think Wednesday” program is the new three-part series Your Inner Fish, which explores how the human body became the complicated, quirky and amazing machine it is today. Based on the best-selling book by Neil Shubin, who also hosts the series, Your Inner Fish travels from Africa to the Arctic to uncover a 3.5-billion-year history of the human body. Part one airs at 10/9 pm on KET.
