JAMESTOWN — Chautauqua Region Community Foundation has granted Reg Lenna Center for The Arts $25,000 to complete an equipment installation in the Reg’s new Media Arts Studio.

The award funded new video and audio components in the studio space, which was part of an extensive renovation of Reg Lenna Center for The Arts facilities. The completion of the Media Arts Studio has allowed the Reg and in-house community radio station WRFA 107.9 FM to fulfill a shared goal of providing the community a live performance and gathering space with digital capabilities.

Among the events offered to the public this fall were an Arts On Fire LIVE! music and spoken word performance series, Bill Ward’s Back Room Radio Hour concerts and Community Matters LIVE! Mayoral Candidate Debate and Jamestown City Council Meet the Candidates forum. Both Arts On Fire LIVE! and Back Room Radio Hour were recorded before studio audiences and broadcast on WRFA, while the Community Matters LIVE! events were aired live with an audience. Several of these events were also captured on video and are available to view on YouTube.

The Media Arts Studio is available to rent for performances, meetings and private events and parties. More free public events are being planned for 2020. For information, visit reglenna.com or call (716)484-7070.
