Station To Station
Station To Station was a life altering, cross-country experience, which brought music, art and artisanal craftsmanship to nine cities across the US. Curated by Doug Aitken and sponsored by Levis, Station to Station produced pop-up "happenings" in Brookyln, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Minneapolis, Winslow, Santa Fe, Barstow, Los Angeles and Oakland. Musicians Patti Smith, Beck, Cat Power, Jackson Browne, Mavis Staples and Thurston Moore joined artists Olaf Breuning, Sam Falls, Liz Glynn, Ernesto Neto, Urs Fischer, Kenneth Anger and more to bring a once in a lifetime experience to all who attended. Our crew traveled from DC to San Francisco on vintage railroad cars that were customized for the trip.
I handled all the talent production, which included everything from artist travel and production to wrangling/tour managing while on our cross country train journey.
