Announcing Strange Monsters, a collaborative words-music album

My partner Peter and I are collaborating on an album, Strange Monsters. It will feature my stories and poems read by actors and set to music written by Peter and performed by local musicians. On July 1st we’ll publish the Kickstarter and the first track of the album (the rest has yet to be recorded, which is why we’re Kickstarting it!).

I’ve set up a page for updates, which has more information: https://bonniejostufflebeam.com/strange-monsters/

Art & Words Show Success

The third annual Art & Words Show Reception, which I created and now coordinate, took place on Saturday, September 27, 2014, with the written and visual work from 13 writers and 13 artists. Each artist created a painting or sculpture in response to a story or poem. Each writer created a new story or poem in response to a visual work. This silent collaboration culminated in 52 original works of art & words, which will be on display until October 4 at Art on the Boulevard in Fort Worth, Texas. (With enough interest, Art on the Boulevard may extend the show one week.)

For rights’ sake, we can’t show you all of the written work, but to view the visual works from the show and read the work that was previously published online, take a look at the public PDF document: Art & Words 2014 — public document. It also has links to the writers’ websites.

At the reception, a live jazz band (Peter Brewer, Jake Dester, and Bruce Bond) also performed three literary-written collaborative compositions. It was a great night.
