Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David talks to two artists who have put on their arts organizer hats to better spread the good word and the good art. First, Mike Bizarro is putting together an A Capella Hip Hop night at The Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar. It’s local wordsmiths speaking their words without their beats. True to his role, Mike drops bits of knowledge about the nature of hip hop and the nature of art as if the knowledge was going out of style. Next, David welcomes back Miller Murray Susen just as Live Arts Theatre welcomes her back as its Education Director. We talk to Miller about what Live Arts offers in terms of education and what she hopes it can offer in the future. It’s artists reaching out to other artists and to our community 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.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David looks like Lando Calrissian but flies solo (Ha!) as Leslie is under the weather, but he rocks it with two great guests. For the first time we welcome, Eileen French, artist at McGuffey Art Center, who is in charge of their Art Movie Night. She also brings with her Daniella Chadwick from their Incubator Studio, and we get into both topics — the movies, the Incubator Studio, what it’s like to watch a movie outside, what it’s like to be a young artist sharing a space with six other young artists, etc. Then, Miller Murray Susen from Village School comes on the show to talk about their Fragments of the Future Award Ceremony at New Dominion Bookshop. Middle school girls from all over the area competed in the return of Village School’s short story contest. Good guests and good talks gives you a reason to get up Sunday mornings. Enjoy this week’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.
