Words Matter is a collaboration of creative minds. There are several teams, each beginning the creative process with a literary contribution from a writer. From there, a combination of artists and performers extend that creation into their own media — visual artists, musicians, dancers, actors, photographers, fashion artists, and filmmakers find collective expression from the language.
This collaboration comes together to present art works at the annual Words Matter art show. The show features John W. Sparks, Jenny Odle Madden, Carl Moore, Brian Anderson, Anne Schorr, Madeline Faber, Maritza Davila, Davy Ray Bennett, Blueshift Ensemble, Brad Troxel, Mike Doughty, Jayme Stokes, Lurlynn Franklin, Stacey Wiedower, Camilla Curran, Juju Bushman, Hillary Butler, and Anna Cardona.
