We’re so excited about the new site launching this month, new studio space for FALL aerial dance classes, and new permanent studio space in the works. It’s been a busy spring so far! If you haven’t seen the latest installation for David Landry’s project “The Anomaly” be sure to check it out now. Also, congrats to our resident artists Justin Harvey for his acting, choreography and stunt work on a new music video for country artist Justin Moore.

Our volunteers are hard at work on a brand new website for abrasiveMedia. Things will be pretty quiet around here while we finish build-out and the site transition, but the new site will be an improved resource for all the artists we work with, as well as our audiences. Can’t wait for the launch!

September is for strategic development. We’re working on updating our website, filling out our 2012-2013 calendar of events, and assisting our resident artists with everything from website updates to business planning to class development. Don’t forget to find us on twitter and facebook!
Nashville Manifesto: A Call For Continued Innovation
We are often asked why we think artists, their skills and their ideas are so important.
We answer with an exercise: imagine the world without art.
The furniture you are sitting on does not exist. Neither does your house, or your office.
Your clothing – unless you are currently wearing fig leaves – is no longer there, either. Oops.
Skyscrapers, cars, the symphony, break dancing, hairstyles, jazz bands, wallpaper, novels, make-up, hip-hop, cathedrals, temples, mosques, marketing material, fashion, religious icons, poetry, websites, architecture, philosophy, history – how many extinct cultures do we know only from what their artisans left behind? Can you think of anything that has been truly untouched by art?
