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.

Color Blocking

All of the major colors are now blocked out on the panels:

From here on out it's patterns and details!

The last couple weeks have been a whirlwind, and we'd like to thank a few people in particular for their help: Steve Spurgeon, Corinne Longman, Ian Wilkinson, Pattiy Torno, Jenny Bowen, Diane Ruggiero, Stephanie Carver, Morgan Asbell, and the River Arts District Artists.

Here's a shot of the mural from Roberts Street, at the bottom of Chicken Hill between Phil Mechanic and the church:

If you are in Asheville, come stop by the space tomorrow @ 117 Riverside Drive for RiverLink's Earth Day festivities and get an up-close-and-personal look at what we're working on.
