Waterloo Arts District, Artist Jerry Schmidt, Waterloo Art House

On this episode of Applause we sit down with the owner operators of the Beachland Ballroom, one of the anchors of the emerging Waterloo Arts District.

And we stop by the home of some recent arrivals to Collinwood.  They moved to the area in part because of the enthusiasm and growing support for transforming Waterloo into an arts district as well as their own personal commitment to the arts that for them begins at home

Plus we stop by the studio of a long-time resident-artist who credits art for his salvation. 

And we meet a businessman who opened a new restaurant and bar in Collinwood who’s learning his ABC’s.
