Poetry, fiction, non-fiction, dramatic pieces and experimental whatnots are displayed adjacent to images of original artwork and accompanied by musical compositions or authors' recorded recitations.
The evenings' live musical offerings range from the experimental adventure of an improvised duet by Ben Tyree (acoustic guitar) and Will Martina (cello) and the 21st Century Composed (Jazzy) Improvisation group The Push-Pull Quartet (Ben Rush Miller & friends) to rocking, rolling, and swinging international music for DANCING by The Alphabet City AllStars.
There will be a showing of video art and animations by Jean Detheux, Jeff Lowe, Orin Buck, Debra Di Blasi, New Zealand film makers, and possibly others. Poetry and Prose Readers will include Eric Darton, Ranbir Sidhu, Rich Murphy, Tsipi Keller, Jason Price Everett, Urayoan Noel, and Andrew Taylor.
