Featured work at The Times Club @ Prairie Lights

My Monkeybicycle8 podcast of "Donald Mason's City Inspection and the Stakeout Standoff" is featured as a sound piece in a month-long exhibition titled "Underneath the Bunker" at The Times Club in Iowa City. The Times Club, by the way, is part of the legendary independent bookstore Prairie Lights, which has been an Iowa City institution since 1978.

So what does it mean to have my story re-classified as a sound piece in an art exhibition? Basically Artist/Curator Pete Schulte will play the 26 minute recording of "Donald Mason's City Inspection and the Stakeout Standoff" randomly 3-4 times per day over the sound system at The Times Club at Prairie Lights. For the entire month of April! I will also do a live reading of this story later in the month at The Times Club, details to follow.

"Underneath the Bunker" features brilliant artwork by renowned artists Deb Sokolow and Travis Head. If you're in Iowa City head over to Prairie Lights and check it out. You won't be sorry. And you can check out images of "Underneath the Bunker" from afar by liking The Times Club on Facebook.
