Posted By on Tue, Oct 8, 2019 at 4:00 AM

Starting this Thursday, Oct 10, you can watch a new television series featuring Richmond artists and arts groups on VPM PBS at 8:30 p.m.

"The Art Scene" will spend 13 episodes exploring these local arts personalities and organizations from the theater world to fine arts, music and arts education.

The debut episode will feature Richmond murals and the power of public art with a focus on Hamilton Glass and Matt Lively; Live Arts, specifically their mentor/apprentice program; and Dogtown Dance Theatre. To see a trailer for the show, go to Vimeo.

Among the hosts for the series: Haliya Roberts, Bianca Bryan, Noah Scalin and Douglas Powell, aka Roscoe Burnems. According to a press release, both Roberts and Bryan have theater backgrounds. Scalin is a visual artist (Skull A Day book as well as this year's Folk Fest artist) and Burnems is a slam poetry performer.

“We are honored that VPM chose 19RED to produce a show that celebrates the people and organizations that create art that inspires, educates and is inclusive of all Virginians,” said Managing Producer Pam Hervey in the press release. “Our mission with ‘The Art Scene’ is to capture the true spirit of these creative communities in our stories and help make their art accessible to all.”
