World renowned choreographer and dancer Trisha Brown made a rare solo appearance at The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM) on March 15 and 16, 2003, presenting the U.S. premiere of It’s a Draw/Live Feed. This work brought together drawing, movement, music and video. Brown improvised a series of large-scale drawings with charcoal, pastel and paper, while her activities are presented to the audience as a live feed video. These drawings -- the latest in a series of large scale graphic works by Ms. Brown -- are at The Fabric Workshop until April 19, 2003. The event was organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art Department of Modern & Contemporary Art in collaboration with The Fabric Workshop and Museum.
