Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown our co-hosts Leslie M. Scott-Jones and David Vaughn Straughn welcome three great guests. First, vocal instructor Heather Hightower, head of The Center for Vocal Study visits us for the first time to talk about her upcoming free vocal lesson as part of The Downtown Business Association of Charlottesville’s Arts in the Park in Emancipation Park. Next, our man Ty Cooper returns with the lowdown on his Comedy Writing Workshop at PVCC. What do you learn when Ty teaches you about comedy? Finally, we’re pleased to have L.A. artist Lisa Beane come to us after Saturday night’s opening of her new exhibit at the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center, Karma, that features paintings that fuse bright colors, humor, and images of our childhood with lynching stamps. It’s three different artists talking about three different ways that art can move and center you here on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.
