Culture Connection takes a light survey of the upcoming arts and cultural events going on in the region to spotlight for our listeners. The feature shares event details that have been chosen and read for our listeners by Hanna Lynch, in loving memory of WNRN’s Culture Monkey, Beryl Solla. 

If you would like to submit an arts event that is coming up in the next month, email culture@wnrn.org!

She received her MFA from the University of Miami and has made various large-scale public tile projects for the past twenty-five years.
