Home Grown: Seeing the Light: Let There Be Light and L.E. Zarling

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie field two call-in guests. First, it’s time again for Let There Be Light at Piedmont Virginia Community College. We talk to local artist and curator James Yates as well as Beryl Solla Chair of Visual and Performing Arts at PVCC. James and Beryl have been doing Let There Be Light for twelve years, and we talk about the show’s inception and what it has grown into. We also talk about the artists involved and what it’s like to make a piece for Let There Be Light. Then, we talk to improv performer L.E. Zarling. She’s leading a Trans and Non-Binary Improv Workshop and then following it with her one-person show, Wisconsin Laugh Tripast the Ix Art Park. We have a great talk with L.E. that starts with Wisconsin Laugh Trip and continues into a discussion about how improv helped her find herself as trans and then how she finds being out as trans and doing improv for other people. We swear we didn’t plan it, but it’s another show about art bringing people together on 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.
