Recently KRL checked in with several local theatre companies to see how shelter-in-place was affecting them and what people could do to help. This week we checked in with several local artists that KRL has featured in the past to see how they are doing. While this is only a small handful of the many artists in the area, I am sure if your favorite artist isn’t listed they would be happy to have you reach out to them on social media.

I decided to delve further to find out why. Just as Fresno is known as the gateway to Yosemite, so is Sanger the gateway city to Kings Canyon National Park. And it is in Grant Grove that the General Grant tree, the largest giant Sequoia in the Park, and the second largest in the world, lives.

I had been tripping over reminders of The Manchester Experiment for a while when I decided I’d better take a look. I discovered a collective of artists, poets, sculptors, and musicians joined by community builders and organizers who believe that art brings people together and can create neighborhoods in unlikely places like shopping malls.
