Our Writer-in-Residence blogs about the new Riverside Theatre production
Elena Passerello (left), the UIMA's current Writer-in-Residence, is also the star of the play Apartment A3, which opened last night at Riverside Theatre, 213 N. Gilbert St., Iowa City. Read her blog posts on Riverside Theatre's Riverblog for some behind-the-scenes info on the production, and make sure you make it out to see the show before it closes on April 13!
And for those of you not familiar with the Museum Writer-in-Residence program, here's a quick run down: Created in the fall of 2006, this program aims to foster writing about the visual arts by inviting four UI nonfiction writing MFA candidates to spend three months each at the Museum. The writers receive an honorarium and an office at the UIMA to work, and each one presents a reading during their tenure alongside other distinguished writers from the UI's famed writing program. Passerello already gave her reading, but don't miss Amelia Bird's turn on April 17 at 7:30 p.m. at the University of Iowa Museum of Art, 150 N. Riverside Drive.
