Treading Loudly is curated by Project participants. The opening reception will feature a live performance by singer-songwriter Mikalyn Hay. A talk with the artists and a musical performance by Roscoe Fiction (Peter Spring) takes place at a closing reception on Tuesday, July 30 from 7-9 pm at the Boarding House Gallery.
