Trickhouse Live is an integrative arts series that brings together people working with words, images, sounds, videos, and a variety of performances. The series serves as a venue for visiting artists to interact with local artists and for the borders between genres and mediums to be permeable. Trickhouse Live is a physical world extension of the online cross-genre arts journal, Trickhouse.org which is based in Tucson.
Rebecca Iosca appreciates people, snail-mail, books, bicycles, and the writing community supported by Casa Libre.
Marisa Muro: My family emmigrated to Chicago from Mexico in 1980. I spent most of my childhood there. I received my BFA from the American Academy of Art and then moved to Minneapolis before ending up here. I've been mostly holed up in my studio cause I can be kind of a recluse. My work consists largely of what I call abstract landscapes with most of my inspiration coming from urban decay, old warehouses, train yards, etc. After living in Mongolia for a year I started taking pictures to show people back home but found I really liked photography and that led to messing around with film. I love working with different medium and I don't like to do things the same way all the time. I change my mind a lot. People don't like that when it comes to art. I live with my cat Thomas. He seems to be the only one who will put up with me.
