Paper Darts + MIA 

Third Thursday, January 17th 2013

 

In no order of excellentness, the run of show: 

1: EXQUISITE CORPE WITH JENNIFER DAVIS

If you're familiar with Paper Darts then you know how much we love art, especially the art of Jennifer Davis. If you aren't familiar with PD then consider this your schooling—we LOVE art. The fantastic Jennifer Davis created a beautiful beast that has been sliced up into pieces for our audience to color and put in position. 

 

2: ADVENTURE STORIES BY ED BOK LEE, JOHN JODZIO, KATIE HEANEY, AND MAGGIE RYAN SANDFORD

If you're familiar with Paper Darts then you also know we're pretty into writing, especially surreal, irreverent writing that pumps us up. If you aren't familiar with PD then consider this your schooling—we LOVE, surreal, irrevernt writing that pumps us up. These four authors wrote four stories (each with multiple paths and endings) that wound our audience through the galleries at the MIA. 

 

3: KILL THE VULTURES

The MIA team always picks killer bands to go along with their Third Thursday events, and this one was no different. Read our interview with hip-hop duo Kill the Vultures and be sad you weren't there.

 


4: ARTY PARTY WITH ALLEN BREWER

Remember how PD loves art? Remember how PD loves words? Well, Allen Brewer's got our number. He asked folks for detailed descriptions of art from the museum. From those descriptions, he made new works of art. Check out this feature we did on Allen and his lovely art.

 

5: JERRY BELICH AND HIS CHOOSATRON DELUXE ADVENTURE MATRIX

Mr. Belich represents a brain that just won't quit. He was the mastermind behind the Choosatron Deluxe Adventure Matrix—a world in a cardboard box, an adventure at the touch of a button. Read our interview with the amazing Jerry Belich and gasp in wonder.

 

6: THE THEATER OF PUBLIC POLICY

If you're familiar with life, then you know improv comedy is awesome. If you aren't familiar with life, then you're probably a baby and can't read this anyway. Lucky for usT2P2 agreed to come hang with us for Third Thursday. Not only did they be help craft single-word stories in that amazing Otis elevator that the MIA has, but they were stationed at two of the story endings to help make that adventure come to life.
