Artist Brack Morrow’s Earth Aural Rover 1 (EAR1) Project is part vehicle, part sculpture, part recording device, part musical instrument, part environmental statement — and all fascinating. The four-wheeled, remote-controlled EAR1 will help roll out the fourth season of the El Paso Community Foundation Jewel Box Series at the Philanthropy Theatre.
Impact | Programs of Excellence presents Morrow and EAR1 at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, October 8 in the Philanthropy Theatre, located on the second floor of the Plaza Theatre Performing Arts Centre Annex (above the box office).
Tickets are $16, on sale at the Plaza Theatre box office, Ticketmaster outlets, ticketmaster.com, and 800-745-3000. Season tickets $103 (a $25 discount), on sale at the El Paso Community Foundation, 333 N. Oregon, 915-533-4020 and epcf.org/give/donate.
The October 8 program will feature a short, introductory talk by Morrow, a musical performance on the rover, and a short film about the EAR1’s travels in the region.
Las Cruces resident Morrow, who teaches at El Paso Community College, describes his work as being “at the intersection between art, science, and music.” Morrow has art degrees from New Mexico State University and the Massachusetts College of Art.
The Jewel Box Series is produced in partnership with El Paso Live, and is supported by the City of El Paso’s Museums and Cultural Affairs Department.
