It’s Midday on the Arts.  A little later, Tom speaks with the founding executive director of the Peale Museum, which is re-opening to the public on Saturday after a major renovation. And J Wynn Rousuck will have a theater review.

But we’ll begin today with two local film makers who are the creators of a web series called Turf Valley.  It chronicles the lives of some stay at home dads, in episodes that are each 6 or 7 minutes long. Here’s a sample.

Tom Ventimiglia and Adam Rodgers are the creators of Turf Valley.  They join us on our digital lines.
