Blackbox says
Please join Blackbox for a special poetry reading where distinguished Austin-based poets Lisa Olstein, Carrie Fountain and Cecily Parks will read their poetry, including verses inspired by the music boxes.

Once Upon a Time is a series of small-scale mechanical sculptures based on traditional Russian folk tales. Collectively, they examine the underlying moralistic messages and horrors of fairy tales and recreate them from a perspective of child empowerment. Each piece is a wind-up toy complete with a painted wooden box with moving figures, as well as music clockwork that plays a custom-composed melody by Yevgeniy Sharlat, particular to each scene.

This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
