Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

On today’s Home Grown David Vaughn Straughn and Leslie M. Scott-Jones host a roundtable discussion with artistic directors Boomie Pedersen and Bree Luck and playwright Scott Dunn. They talk about recent events where playwrights and their agents have shut down productions for not following their wishes and the greater responsibility for theaters, especially community theaters, to reflect their communities. Then David welcomes back one of Home Grown’s favorite guests, Brian Wimer from the IX Art Park to talk about how their upcoming arts festival which commemorates the Summer of Love can help bring people together. It’s all Peace and Love at Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 AM to 11 AM.
