INTERPRETATION, PLEASE:
An extended listening party / art exhibition
Jan 28 – Mar 1, 2013

grycts_artshow FINAL

With lean times on the mind, we set out to create a Dust Bowl record. We found our way through the 1939 World’s Fair instead. The dreamers of yesteryear looked to the future to lift themselves from a Great Depression. It was January in Minneapolis. The timing couldn’t have been better for an exhibition of our own.

We asked 12 artists whose work we love to interpret each song from our new album, World of Tomorrow, in any fashion they saw fit. Each piece was on display near a listening station, where visitors could offer their interpretations.

We lead a series of walking tours through the entire exhibit, playing acoustic sets of the entire album and offering our own interpretations as we traveled from piece to piece.
