Cindy Tower & Poetry Scores present “Crescendo”

For Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis’ “Open Studios”
Saturday, July 25 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Southeast corner of Tower Grove Park

As part of The Contemporary Art Museum Saint Louis’s “Open Studios” weekend, on Saturday, July 25 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Cindy Tower and Poetry Scores will present “Crescendo” in the southeast corner of Tower Grove Park, at the intersection of Grand and Arsenal Streets.

The live performance event will feature musicians improvising together while artists draw or paint them. There will be two separate sets, starting at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. respectively, with different sets of musicians and artists for each.

The intention is to record the music, and play it at a later date when the resulting artworks are exhibited and sold on silent auction.

This project aims to foster community and bring public attention to the wide range and diversity of talent in St. Louis.

Participants are as follows:

10 AM - 12:30 PM:

Musicians: Jason Braun, Mike Burgett, Heidi Dean, Ellen Gomez, John Marshall, Carl Pandolfi, Geoff Seitz.

Artists: Cindy Chafin, Kathy Cory, Mary Downey, Tim McAvin, Carmelita Nunez, Lucky Rashkis, Tony Renner, John Sarra, Daniel Shown, Barbara St. John, Zak Marmelefsky

Special Thanks to John Eiler and his family for use of their house across the street as a “green room” for participants!
