Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie welcome two friends back to the show. First, local playwright Robert Wray makes our day. He brings with him director and producer Marty Moore and actor Justin Parker all to talk about his coming-of-age play The Secret Rain, a production of the Charlotesville Playwrights Collective. We talk to all of them about the play and to Robert specifically about his writing process and the roles that time and music play. Then we welcome back to the show Sarah Hamfeldt, Refernce and Adult Services Manager at the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library. As part of Welcome Week, the library has a slew of artistic events that will help us celebrate diversity in our community. The wonderful Sarah talks about them and about how the library is ideally poised to play that role of community builder. It’s art that’s personal and art that’s public on today’s Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

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