In a region where people of color are a minority of the population, how is their experience reflected in their art and how is their work received? Art is an expression of an individual’s emotions, experiences and perspective. Mindy Todd sits down with painters, a writer, a vocalist and art educators of color to hear more about their work and their experiences living and making art on the Cape and Islands. Guests on the program: Robin Joyce Miller, artist. Carl Lopes, artist, head of Barnstable High School Art Department. Cerise Bynoe, Jazz vocalist. Joe Diggs, artist. Lauren Wolk, Associate Director of The Cultural Center of Cape Cod. Jarita Davis, writer. Janice Frame, retired Martha's Vineyard High School Art instructor.
