Kelly Ruth

SHIFT Art Residency to Begin 4.14 at The East Room

From the top of her bio, Kelly Ruth instructs: “Follow your bliss, and I’ll do the same.” Her bliss has lead her to steadily craft a collection of folk songs with a 1960’s pop mentality, as demonstrated by “Blue-Eyed Lover” below. Her bliss has also inspired her to collaborate with visual artist Sadie Monroe to create “SHIFT: a Sensory Movement.” With the objective of “awakening in-taker’s senses to alternative existence,” this will be a multi-media event that will occupy The East Room for the next three Mondays in April (4/14, 4/21, 4/28) involving photography, art instillations and musical acts invited by Ruth, including Jordan Hull, Elise Davis, Honey Locust, Phantom Farmer, Charlie Whitten and Julianna.

The first night of the residency will be April 14th, at the East Room (promised to be ‘transformed’ by Monroe.) The event starts at 7pm, and the cover is $5. –Terra James-Jura
