Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie are back with two more groups of artists. First, Geri Schirmer returns to the show. She’s talked before about the project that she’s had years experience with, the teen relationship assault and abuse play, I Never Saw It Coming. It’s about to start a series of performances with a show at Live Arts Theatre. With Geri is director Denise Stewart and teen actor Sophia Colby. They talk about the issue of assault and abuse in teen relationships and what it’s been like to work on a play that dramatizes and addresses these issues. Next, our month-long focus on the McGuffey Art Center’s Black History Month exhibit continues with artists JaeJae Johnson and Anthony Scott. Anthony and JaeJae are both portrait artists. They talk about their influences and what is compelling about capturing the human face. It’s art for the public and art for the personal on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.
