Project Description

The Asheville Rites Project is a public performance collaboration between painter Molly Rose Freeman, dancer Garth Grimball, and musician Michael Libramento. In April, Molly will install a series of wall-sized panels at the RiverLink Sculpture and Performance Plaza in the River Arts District of Asheville, NC. Over the course of a month, she will paint an abstract mural on them to act as a backdrop for a dance piece that Garth will choreograph. Michael will compose an original score for the piece, and it will be played live during the performance. The performance is scheduled for May 21 and will be free and open to the public. This project is made possible with support from RiverLink, Arts2People, Asheville Mural Project, Asheville Ballet, and the generosity of the sponsors listed below.

Carnivalesque: A Carnival & Interactive Installation from Steve Spurgeon

Steve Spurgeon, whose able hands built the panels for our project, is launching his own project this Saturday--Carnivalesque: A Carnival & Interactive Installation, an outdoor event across from Pink Dog Creative and the Artery on Depot Street in the River Arts District of Asheville, NC. Attractions include a bicycle-powered ferris wheel, Hammerstrike, slot car racing, a Tunnel of Love, and more. In lieu of traditional carnival tickets, you will have the chance to win, lose, and redeem live goldfish (provided.) This event is FREE and open to the public. It will run from 7-10 PM, but get there early for your pick of the best fish. Molly will be running the "ticket" booth, so stop in, say hi, and support a great public art event in the River Arts District!
