Women’s Spaces Radio Show on KBBF-FM 89.1 with host Elaine B. Holtz and guests Judy Kennedy on rescuing public art and Ilana ”Sugar”  Laytart on Women Grow,  broadcast on 7/4/16, has been uploaded to the web archives.


Featuring Guests:

1. Judy Kennedy, Artist, Public Art Advocate

2. Ilana ”Sugar”  Laytart  ,Co-Founder, Sonoma County Chapter of Women Grow


Guest 1.  Judy Kennedy recounts the dismay at seeing the mural honoring local community activists streaked with grafiti from rival gangs in the area and rallying the community for support in making the mural wall presentable for the annual Juneteenth Celebration which was to occur with the stage using the mural as a backdrop.  The temporary fix Judy came up with used poster size copies of the  photos of the honorees in the mural (See photo below.) The mural is now being restored by the original artist with a grant that will fund apprentices in the Art Quest program.

Guest 2.  Sugar Laytart discusses the increasing participation of women in what has become a male-dominated cannabis industry.  Women Grow was founded a year ago for women to network and encourage each other as they transform the industry and will celebrate its first anniversary on July 7, 2016 with a special Networkng Event that will honor Lynette Shaw, the Godmother of Cannabis, for her 18 years of persevering in her healing work amidst the stress of fighting the Federal government in the courts until she was vindicated earlier this year in an historic victory against the DEA raiding medical cannabis dispensaries.
