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.

Roses and More

Brian came by the space yesterday and brought two BEAUTIFUL roses from his garden. (And they smell incredible....)

Molly's dad, Herschel, passed through town on his way home from MerleFest:

We got a storm on Wednesday night, and the whole platform filled up with water (the panels are fine). Worth it for this photo:

And here's a detail of the middle panel, as of yesterday:
