The Politician meets the Culture Czar
Talk of the Bay, Tuesday, May 3rd, 5-6 PM
On KSQD 90.7 FM & streaming on KSQD.org
This week, on Talk of the Bay, we spend the hour with culturalist, raconteur, and municipal court jester, Grant Wilson. He arrived to Santa Cruz last century as an immigrant-alien and Green-card holder. Wilson said of that chance Santa Cruz meeting, “It was the first time in America I thought I could call a place home.” Today, he is an avid and active arts-advocate and publicist. He is also a social worker, puppet builder, and a one-time artist-in-residence at the SC Museum of Art and History. Wilson spends many of his days now as a part-time flaneur and a full-time political activist and cook. Join us for what promises to be an entertaining, but also surprising conversation about the local political and cultural arts scene. Is all art political by nature, or is it we humans who give it a life beyond perhaps what the artist intended? This week on Talk of the Bay with your host, Chris Krohn, the politician meets the culture czar. That’s Tuesday, May 3rd, from 5-6 PM on KSQD, 90.7 FM & streaming on KSQD.org.
