Spring 2022 Events
May 20, 2022
Austin Arts Center- Goodwin Theater, 7:00pm
Free Admission, Ticket required
Minnesota’s Cloud Cult has a rich eleven-album history of bucking the mainstream music industry in favor of independently releasing music via their environmentally-conscious record label Earthology Records. Hailed as one of the Top 10 Green Bands by Rolling Stone, the band’s philosophical lyrics and alternative-orchestral-folk-rock sound has been lauded by critics as “insane genius” (Pitchfork) and “an invocation of the lifeforce” (New York Times). Cloud Cult began as Craig Minowa’s solo studio project after the unexpected loss of his son and has grown to the present day with an evolving lineup of incredible musicians. Known for incorporating live painting into their concerts, Cloud Cult are pioneers of multimedia artistry. This is most recently highlighted with the feature film release of The Seeker – starring Josh Radnor & Alex McKenna – which accompanied the band’s 2016 album, landed on Entertainment Weekly’s Must List, and garnered prestigious awards on the indie film festival circuit. Now six years later, Cloud Cult returns with their transformative new album Metamorphosis.
May 20, 2022 – September 30, 2022
Austin Arts Center – Widener Gallery
Free AdmissionIn Divine Theory, Jerome Sicard’s large, stoic sculptures are flanked by the quiet wall works of Brea Campbell-Stewart and bathed in the cassette-recorded sounds of original compositions by artist and musician Miguel Mathias. Together, these visual and auditory components create and aura of sanctity — borrowing the aesthetic power and calculated opacity of the religious only to deploy them at the contemporary intersections of craft, commerce, and appropriation.
Divine Theory was curated by the Trinity Studio Arts Program’s 2021-2022 post-bacc fellow Harrison Kinnane Smith.
Additional performances to be announced!
