  1. […] During the hubbub of getting ready for the balm Dry Bones show we were asked along with some other local art collectives to produce a piece for Lawrence Magazine called Collective Creations.  There was a quick little video piece done as well about the theme Love in the Time of Beer Bellies … a Mass. St. Romance.  I have gotten to do a little radio lately for the promotion of the Downtown Lawrence Art Districts Final Friday’s on 1320 AM which has been a fun experience.  If you have a moment take some time to check out some other reviews and press on the balm site.

White of  b.a.l.m.  (beauty, art and life movement), the show is the latest volley in an artistic exchange…” by SA Express News. Also noted by Jabulani Laffal on NPR Radio KCUR 89.3 FM Central Standard Show, “…how their recent collaborations have started a larger conversation about artists forming communities outside their region.” And …“something extra special” by Lawrence.com.
