Hearing Voices


The second series of "Hearing Voices/Seeing Visions" starts up again next Tuesday at Orr Street. Begun last spring by Chris Teeter and Anthony Connolly, the evenings feature two readers followed by a casual Q&A session in which the audience may ask the writers any questions their work has provoked. The event is hosted in the common area of Orr Street studios, a space greatly inducive to spurring the imagination. On alternate Tuesdays, Orr St. offers free screenings of films on art and creativity. The series quickly became a great conduit for the merging of the literary and visual arts and the local and academic communities in creative conversation. Being strangers to town, Orr St. became our lifeline to area artists and writers. This time around I'll be scheduling the readers as Anthony has begun his PhD at MU and his plate is quite full. Elaine Johnson has stepped into lead the Q&As and Chris will continue to provide really intriguing films. I'm really looking forward to seeing what transpires this year at Orr St. Shown is the evite I designed for the reading series.

the art in your graphics never ceases to impress me. So nice to see you use a kupie doll in the mix.

Shucks, guys. Thanks. I'd like nothing more for you al to join us at Orr. What a night that'd be!
Yes, Laurie--I snuck another one in. Gotta justify all those "must haves."
