The art of Joni Mitchell

We devote the entire program on Tuesday to an in-depth, and very revealing interview with Joni Mitchell. She will be in Toronto June 18 and 19 for the Luminato festival, where she will be reciting poetry at a tribute concert in her honour. But music and poetry are not Joni Mitchell's only gifts. She's also won acclaim as a painter. In advance of the festival, she welcomed Jian and a CBC crew into her home in Los Angeles, and gave us a rare view of the studio where she paints, as well as some remarkable, rarely seen paintings.
