America : Painting a Nation 2014

As part of the Art Gallery of NSW’s  Exhibition America: Painting a Nation, Word Travels got creative.

Chicago born spoken word artist Miles Merrill and multi-instrumentalist Trevor Brown teamed up for a very special series. Classic American texts came to live with original compositions to enliven the gallery’s American Painting exhibition for five weeks in 2014.

Audiences were treated to tales from the 1700s through to the present day, from Bret Harte to Edgar Allen Poe.
