The next big thing for me is the RAiL launch. RAiL is an amazing project in Reading, PA. We’re trying to put together an art train: cars that are painted by local artists and then used as performance spaces at events. We’re in the process of preparing a model car and will be publicing launching the whole project on October 26th. Andrew Pochan has created a great video that describes the project and the launch:
For this launch we’ve received grants from Berks Arts Council, Wyomissing Foundation, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and Berks County Arts Fund. It’s nice to have the backing of so many illustrious groups.
To help celebrate the launch we’re bringing in local musicians, dancers, theater artists, poets, all kinds of. We’ve got six different groups of artists working on canvas panels that will be draped over a train car located at the Reading Railroad Museum in Hamburg, PA. The launch is October 26th noon to 5pm at 500 S. 3rd Street in Hamburg. It’s a free event. There will be food for sale. It’s outside, and we’ll have some chairs, but you might want to bring your own.
Here are the performers:
See you there!
