CURRENT RADIO SHOW: A visit to the Gene Autry Museum to hear about a current exhibition featuring two Native American Contemporary artists, Harry Fonseca and David Bradley’s Indian Country. Harry Fonseca uses Coyote as a heroic symbol transforming the stereotype images of the Native American culture. David Bradleys work echos the commercialism of Sante Fe while expressing his own unique style and sense of humor into his art. We then travel to a hidden Mediterranean garden tucked away in the city of Pasadena called the Arlington Gardens. This tranquil oasis is filled with drought tolerant plants and flowers founded by two passionate gardeners who’s signature of sustainable landscape design is an inspiration to visitors.
