Art Shows at PublicRadioArtSpace

ago

From 2006-2014, WMRA hosted art exhibits at the Harrisonburg facility.  WMRA plans to continue boosting the regional creative community in other ways.  Artists are also mentioned on-air occasionally during our news/interview shows (like The Spark).  Map to the sitePast exhibits.

On The SparkDennis Lynch first came to the Valley fresh out of college to work at the Wayside Theater. But he stayed to run the Shenandoah Valley Music Festival.

Sefe Emokpae takes us to a winery near Charlottesville that's trying hard to stand out in Virginia's wine country... Kara Lofton concludes our "Clean Virginia" series with a look towards the sun... and because there may be a mountain lion roaming around Milwaukee, what better excuse to revisit "Schrodinger's Cougar"?  Also, this week's Spark.

In the final installment of our occasional series “Clean Virginia,” WMRA’s Kara Lofton reports on the current solar trend, what it means for Virginia and how solar may change how we use energy.

Sefe Emokpae

The wine industry is a growing and essential part of Central Virginia’s culture and economy. But with the presence of so many vineyards, it can sometimes be hard to stand out. WMRA’s Sefe Emokpae takes us through a winery that’s different in more ways than one.

This week, Scott Lowe toured the 20-year-old Virginia Quilt Museum, containing centuries-old quilts.... Kara Lofton brought us new water consumption guidelines for athletes, and the views of opposite sides over the Confederate flag.... and Jessie Knadler finds out why the cash-strapped Buena Vista Police Department spent nearly $50,000 on a new drug-sniffing dog.

On This Episode of The Spark: These days 83-year-old Bob Brennan busies himself with Percheron Horses and a recalcitrant donkey on his Orange County farm. But he started his farming career raising chickens... at about the same time he started going to school.
