An intimate new folk musical about grief, self-acceptance, and brotherly love following the story of two brothers after the sudden death of their Mother.

Reid is an aspiring artist and a young transgender man beginning to find his way in the world; Jackson is the smart and focused older brother, set on a career in medicine and beginning to re-navigate his relationship with his younger brother. Their mother Cassie is their biggest champion, and the heart of their home. Everything seems possible and wonderful, until Cassie’s sudden death causes the brothers to lose their home, their family, and their most important lifeline.

Lead by songwriter and performer Robin Simões Da Silva, Works of Art explores the impact of grief, and the influence of art in navigating the path to acceptance.
