Work for Art -- Live Wire! Radio

In appreciation of a pledge of $60 or more to Work for Art, donors who allow Work for Art to contact them receive an Arts Card, which provides a full year of 2-for-1 tickets to hundreds of arts and culture events. Arts Card recipients are informed of these events through the monthly Arts Card E-newsletter and on Work for Art's website.

Oregon grown and raised, Live Wire! is slowly taking over the country, airing on OPB and dozens of stations –from Seattle to Chicago, and Albuquerque to Tallahassee.  Live Wire! connects audiences to a variety of guest artists – each show is packed with live theater, music, original comedy, and interviews.In addition to their shows, Live Wire! collaborates with other arts and culture groups each year. Last year, their head writer and their producer/house band member spent 10 days in Sisters, OR with Caldera, an organization that offers arts programs to underserved youth. Participants learned how to write, record, and produce their own radio show.Catch the Live Wire! fever by attending a live show (use your Arts Card for 2-for-1 tickets!), on OBP radio at 3:00 pm Saturdays, or through your favorite podcast platform.
