“Discover” is the theme of Artscape this weekend, the nation's largest free arts festival.

We preview Teenscape: Jimmie Thomas, principal of the Media Rhythm Institute, tells how students learn artistic and technical skills for careers in the music industry. And we meet up-and-coming performers, emcee Shania Norris and rapper Saniyah Fletcher. Catch their performance on Saturday at Motor House from 5-7 pm. 

Then, Gamescape: Baltimore board chair of the International Game Developers Association, Jonathan Moriarty, describes some of the games and companies taking part and explains the artistic thinking in video games. Check out Gamescape at 1915 Maryland Ave.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
Maureen Harvie is Senior Supervising Producer for On the Record. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and joined WYPR in 2014 as an intern for the newsroom. Whether coordinating live election night coverage, capturing the sounds of a roller derby scrimmage, interviewing veterans, or booking local authors, she is always on the lookout for the next story.
