Holiday Party
at Matt & Michelle’s

Mustard-In-Law played our first out of town gig for a holiday get-together at Matthew Crowe’s house outside Indianola, Iowa.  Matt ordered up a hot slice with extra mustard, and specially requested that we do a two-hour set including the chef’s entire range of select dipping sauces. We were able to stretch our legs’ ears, and we thought it was the best thing we’ve done in front of other people. If you didn’t catch the whole thing in person, here’s the line-in audio. Warning: may cause enchanted brain syndrome, leaky dream sequence, or discrete bowel malfunction.

scrotal curtsy

scrotal curtsy is a poem by Montreal-based musician Steve Howe.
I created art to correspond with the text, then crafted these tiny books.

film & performance

At 6pm on August 16, 2016, we hit record on the video camera and proceeded to film a battery of prepared visual stations without stopping the recording until the 30 minute mark. At 9pm, we arrived at the Governor’s Mansion and set up our sound equipment facing a blank wall. Using the projector on the camera, we splashed the recording from earlier onto the wall. All of the sound was improvised live while watching the film. The audience gathered behind us, able to see both the projection and what we were doing with our hands.

Pfff! Monument to The Noise

Mustard-In-Law “Grey Poupon for Bing Bong” appears on the compilation “Pfff! Monument to The Noise” from Italian web-label, MAV Records.  Besides being full of genuinely profound vaporized audio, the cool thing about this release is that it does have a special physical edition.  There is a USB dead drop in Collegno, Italy, which houses the files, free to access by any passer-by.

The compilation can be heard and downloaded at:

The busiest day of my life.

Three exhibits featuring my work all occurred at the same time within a block of each other, coincidentally during both the Iowa Arts Festival and the Iowa City First Friday Gallery Walk.
• Textiles women’s clothing store is showing a full array of my paintings and collages for 3 months.
• Iowa Artisans Gallery has a postcard-sized exhibit with a few of my pieces included.
• Blick Art Materials had an employee show, with even more creations from my hands.

Art for Access

A watercolor piece I contributed to the third annual Art for Access event, hosted by the Iowa Abortion Access Fund.  Proceeds help provide access to women’s health services.

Art for Access


SPACE JAM was a 4-day event during Mission Creek, occupying the area above the Deadwood bar in Iowa City.  Included was a family portrait studio, zine-making supplies and a copy machine, and a zine-reading lounge accompanying the exhibit of zines by many artists (including tons contributed by me from our Zine A Day project).  Check out pics of all the zines at instagram.com/s_p_a_c_e_j_a_m/
