Cam Busch and Tony Smith.

Cam Busch is a pioneer in art therapy here in Chattanooga and beyond.

In 1990, she was the first practicing art therapist to be hired in this city - and she has earned degrees on our campus, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

Tony Smith was born in Chattanooga, lived in LA - and then moved back here, working for local government for 27 years.

In the late ‘90’s, he started writing songs as a hobby - and he pursues that passion today.

Cam and Tony are a creative couple whose contributions to - and support for - the arts ripple throughout this community.

You’ll find them both at ClearStory Arts on Holtzclaw Avenue - and for this episode of “Scenic Roots,” we sat down for this conversation.
