We visit with artist Paul Rucker on the eve of his solo exhibition, REWIND; we meet Mobtown Doulas Carla Paisley and Emily Leffler-Schulman; and Christine Ferrera shares from her Starbux Diary.
To call Paul Rucker
a multidisciplinary artist is an understatement. His solo exhibition, REWIND
, opens February 7th at the Creative Alliance, and it’s big. Installation art, sculpture, musical composition, film, video, animation, and data visualization combine to cover a full three thousand square feet on two floors of gallery space. The Signal’s Aaron Henkin drops in for a preview.
We hear a lot these days about people getting back to basics - canning and fermenting vegetables, knitting and crocheting, gardening and composting. But what about… having babies? Producer Lisa Morgan brings us this story about the Mobtown Doulas
' modern approach to an age old practice.
We’re going to share a story now from a very talented artist and comedian who, coincidentally, used to work as a volunteer producer on this very radio program. Her name is Christine Ferrera
. She did great work for our show, but frankly, what she did with the rest of her time had always been a bit of a mystery to us. Then, she got invited up the microphone at a Stoop Storytelling
event, and she spilled the beans (so to speak) about a little art project that’d been keeping her quite busy. Keep in mind, Christine told this story a while ago now – it was back in 2006 – and after we give this a listen, we catch up in-studio with our old friend to hear how things have been going for her since then.
