TRIO is a traveling exhibit of art, music and literature that celebrates the inspirational power of great storytelling. Created by writer, publisher, singer Shari Smith of Working Title Farm, TRIO is a testament to the way words, music and art can come together around the power of a single story. Each TRIO starts with a book, which is given to a musician and a visual artist, who then write an original song / create a work of art inspired by the story.
One book is given to both a songwriter and a visual artist. They write a song and create a work of art inspired by the book they read fulfilling their TRIO. Each TRIO was installed as part of an exhibit debuting at the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance in September of 2018 and traveling to museums, galleries and literary events throughout 2019.
This event features authors Faith Kaiser, Elaine Neil Orr, Nicole Sarrocco, Jo Watson Hackl and Donna Everhart joined by singer-songwriter Eric Erdman.
