With any reviews of shows there are always a few motives off, but I will have to say the tribune and wbez hit it on the knob when talking about our show. We never wanted to say that tour or dedicating your life to art or music is to difficult. We simply just wanted to say that a lifestyle of “glamour” takes a lot of work, love and dedication. These musicians and artists and ourselves at Johalla Projects wouldn’t have it any other way. The artwork made for this show was to help tour along.. or to express another artwork one loves. Thanks again everyone

THE ART OF TOURING
A multi-media exhibition of work by musicians, inspired life on the road while touring.
Curated by Andrea Jablonski and Anna Cerniglia
This exhibition brings together some of the talent from the book “ART OF TOURING” ( square root books ) and the local music community to showcase creative endeavors when not rockin’ on the stage. Whether video, pictures, sketches or written word , these musicians keep their creative edge sharp while whittling away the hours in a van, on a plane or walking about the cities they frequent.
