TR Ericsson was born in 1972, and lives and works in Brooklyn, New York and Concord Township, Ohio. He works primarily in photography and sculpture.

His sculpture, Everyday is Like Sunday, is one of three works that writers can choose from to use as inspiration in the Fine Arts Center's Rough Writers script contest. Rough Writers is a new play festival being put on as part of our 25th anniversary theatre season. This two-week long festival will feature readings of new scripts submitted by playwrights worldwide. Playwrights whose work is included in the festival will have the opportunity to have their script read in front of an audience with a feedback session. A panel of theatre professionals will adjudicate the submissions and the "winning" script will be given a full production during our 2013-2014 season.

Submissions to our festival will be related to artwork being featured in our Museum's 'family' multi-disciplinary exhibits, such as TR Ericsson's Everyday is Like Sunday.
10-minute, one-act and full-length plays and musicals will be accepted. Approximately 12 scripts will be chosen for readings during the festival. Submissions must be received by February 14, 2013. Playwrights will be notified by March 15, 2013.
