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.

A New Shape

After we finished building the panels from the original specs, we decided to go one step further to give the shape a little more thrust. Steve Spurgeon, above, building the triangular frames for the added panels. The final product:

Ian Wilkinson, director of the Asheville Mural Project, came by to drop off supplies and stayed to help prime the panels.

And Molly started painting on Friday!
