MARSHALL JAMES KAVANAUGH
Marshall is a traveling poet originally from Philadelphia and now living in Taos, NM, but more often than not he can be found on the road traversing the wild array of magic found through out this continent. Over the last few years he has spent his time collecting haikus from the expansive big skies found out west where the trees grow tall and rains do fall and back to the fast-paced cities in the east where the seasons are always changing. Most recently he has published a collection of essays about his experiences in 2016 while camped out with the Water Protectors at Standing Rock in North Dakota. His words attempt to bring light to these movements found out in the city streets or in the forest's wilderness underneath a moon's dear glow.

REBECCA SYLVIA POSNER
Rebecca is an art-maker and writer based in NYC. In transmuting roles of artist, performer, and producer, she creates experiences that tell stories and invite transgression through sensory engagement. Much of her work is created for specific locations or communities, in a range of spaces that include the Brooklyn Museum, an antique diner, and an after-hours ATM vestibule. Currently, she's exploring the power of costume, comedy, and the intimacy of the self.
