Art Zone Phones It In 4/23/20

Christine Riippi, actor, improvisor, and composer, performs a song from her work-in-progress musical "The Quarantine Cycle;" Chef and cookbook author Becky Selengut shares a few of her favorite snack tips; Joe Guppy reveals his favorite snack; singer/songwriter Tomo Nakayama performs his single "Hidakamura;" plus suggestions on how to enjoy, experience and engage with art from home. 

"Art Zone with Nancy Guppy" has temporarily morphed into "Art Zone Phones It In," a low-tech scrappy version filmed in the social distancing comfort of Nancy's condo. With Joe Guppy running camera (his iPhone), Nancy and her remote but mighty AZ team curate homegrown video performances by musicians, actors and comedians; present video interviews with artists, city leaders, and owners of art-based businesses; and feature laugh-out-loud moments like cooped-up cat roommates and Nancy giving Joe a much needed, and very bad, haircut.
