Episode 117: Today I talk to a local “artivist” and muralist, Rosalia Torres Weiner. She has literally painted my whole neighborhood red…and a whole lot of other colors. I love it! She’s turned my neighborhood, as well as many others in Charlotte, into a gallery. With her Red Calaca Studio art truck, she brings art and hope to immigrants.
