The Great Affairs

“…the instant hooks and melodies of Cheap Trick, with the Americana of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers…”
-Screamer Magazine

While they may have cut their teeth on KISS and The Black Crowes, or Queen and Humble Pie, The Great Affairs simultaneously draw from the Pop well of such ‘80s icons as Rick Springfield and Bon Jovi, juxtaposing these elements with the sound of more contemporary acts like The Gaslight Anthem, Butch Walker, and The Stereophonics, to offer up the kind of sweaty, gimmick-free, big guitar anthems that’ll rattle your brain, just as easily as they might slip into lonesome troubadour mode and soothe your soul.

Art Spaces, Inc. and Vigo County Public Library invite you to celebrate a new public sculpture! “Dreiser – Shadows of Meaning” by Urban Rock Design will be dedicated this Friday, April 26 at 11:30 a.m. on the Walnut Street Side of the library.

“Dreiser – Shadows of Meaning”, a powder coated aluminum sculpture created by Urban Rock Design (Jeanine Centuori and Russell Rock) of Los Angeles, California, celebrates writer Theodore Dreiser (born in Terre Haute in 1871) and his importance to the rich cultural heritage of Terre Haute and the field of world literature. As a novelist and journalist, Dreiser was known as the “Father of American Naturalism” and he inspired many of his contemporaries as well as many writers today.

Artist Russell Rock will be speaking about the sculpture, as well as other community members.
