About the album:
J. Otis Powell!'s first art form was theater; his current art form is life. He has made and found work for more than five decades as an actor, writer, performance artist, television /radio/ stage producer, cultural worker, educator, philosopher, curator, mentor, arts administrator and consultant. J. Otis Powell! is a practitioner of Open Space Technology and has used OST for almost two decades with notable success in various productions, in educational scenarios, in administrative consultations and as a means to resolve conflicts. J. Otis lives and works in an aesthetic informed by jazz principles and practices true democracy as art and religion in a world resistant to all three. He has been a recipient of a Loft Creative Nonfiction Award, a Jerome Travel and Study Grant, Jerome Mid Career Artists Grants and Intermedia Arts’ Interdisciplinary McKnight Fellowship. He was a founding producer of Write On Radio!, the Twin Cities literary connection, at KFAI-FM while working as Communities’ Liaison and Program Director for Interdisciplinary Collaborations at The Loft Literary Center.
