Artist Member Spotlight: Great Father Whale, Frances Eliza, David Rubin, Sea of Tranquility
On June 20th, Great Father Whale, Frances Eliza, David Rubin, and Sea of Tranquility put on a well-rounded Artist Member Spotlight of art, music, and poetry. The Negentropic Collective (Daniel Vapne, Taha Arif, Terry Jones, Brennan Clark, and Ed Simmons) performed live improvised music while David Rubin performed live poetry.
