Looking along Wilson Street at the corners of 4th and 5th Streets adjacent to Chevy’s and Aroma Roasters you will now find five storm drain curb faces adorned with environmentally-themed art. These are the first artistically painted storm drains on Santa Rosa’s 18,000 drains that connect to the 100-mile network of creeks flowing through town.

‘The Naked Truth’ is an odd combination of explicit sex discussions and heartwarming friendships that last through arguments and tumultuous circumstances. A group of women in a pole dance class find common ground despite a dichotomy of personalities and maturity in a rapid-paced sequence of events. The audience glimpses selected conversations that are either provocative or give insight into the challenge each woman is overcoming—whether finding the strength to see her beauty during relentless breast cancer treatments or having the confidence to speak up for herself.
