Proceeds from the event will support Courage in Language and Thought – The Dreiser Legacy, a new Art Spaces sculpture to honor Theodore Dreiser, to be placed adjacent to the north (Walnut Street) entrance of Vigo County Public Library.

Dreiser (1871-1945), born in Terre Haute, is widely considered to be the “Father of American Naturalism.” His work helped defined a movement that influenced many other writers from his time to today.  Art Spaces previously honored Dreiser’s brother and well known composer Paul Dresser, with a A Song For Indiana, a sculpture by Teresa Clark, installed in Fairbanks Park.

The staged reading of Theo and His Brother Paul is produced and performed by courtesy of Theater 7 and is sponsored by Arts Illiana, Big Picture, Casey’s General Stores, Inc., Indiana State University Department of English and Creative Writing Program, the Indiana Theater and Vigo County Historical Society.

Art Spaces brings together people and business and art to build a vibrant city.  For more information: 812-235-2801 or www.wabashvalleyartspaces.com
