We Want Your I-95 Ire And Art
If you wrote a play about road rangers or made a quilt from fallen mattress, or glued together a Fabergé-style egg from pieces of shattered headlights, then for the love of highway please contact us.
As part of our End of the Road series, WLRN-Miami Herald News is setting out to collect as much I-95 inspired art as humanly possible. An award-winning poetry collection inspired by the trash mountain just off I-95, perhaps? See “Garbage: A Poem.” A book dedicated to “everyone who has ever taken the chance to ride dirty on I-95,” maybe? Check out “Riding Dirty on I-95: A Novel." Or how about a melodic exploration of the interstate and its archetypal driver? Give a listen to the “I-95 Asshole Song.”
We’ll curate our collection of artistic I-95 oddities on the air and online. This week, we’re featuring the story-song “Southbound for Miami” by Broward-based folk signer Allan Aunapu. As he explained for the radio, there’s quite a back story to Aunapu’s tale of tailgating, road rage and gun play. Take a listen below.
If you have -- or know of -- 95-inspired creative works email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
