I am still stunned that I got to create for this project honoring East Austinites. Invisible Intersections has been the most moving show I’ve ever attended. Twenty-something Austin artists from diverse disciplines and backgrounds contributed work they were absolutely excited to showcase on a very pure level. The personal investment was palpable, you could feel it moving through you in all three locations. For little old me, interviewing and depicting subjects Simone & Rocky, having the freedom to work on a large scale, meeting with the other artists to chat around a backyard fire, taking in their feelings and their work and sharing all of it with the community was really transformative.
Invisible Intersections made me a better person and a more internally connected poet. I hope you got to see it for yourself.
