Our sourdough starter, lovingly named "Bubba", is our bubbly travel companion. It is traveling with us across 23 countries of the Americas, and it has already provided us many a delicious sourdough loaf.

What is the story behind "Bubba" the sourdough starter?
"Bubba" is a starter with a story! When we were in Sparta, NC, we connected with Maggie, one of the teachers at Alleghany JAM where we painted a mural and did a songwriting workshop. Maggie also loves baking, and offered to share some of her starter as we didn't have any on the bus. Since then, it has been thriving! We have shared bread and starter with many folks met along the way.
The name "Bubba" came about after we asked our close-knit Patreon community for name suggestions. Every sourdough starter must have a name! Our community had quite a lot of fun brainstorming fun and cheeky names. Then "Bubba" won the vote by a landslide!

& Cora Rose
We are a pair of artists with the vision of understanding the world through the lens of our art.
We are in the midst of the largest art project either of us has ever taken on, Art We There Yet. We are driving 30,000 miles across North, Central, and South America aboard a school bus converted into an art and recording studio on wheels. We are creating art and music inspired by the Americas, and we are providing free arts programming in underserved communities along the way.
The goal of the project is twofold. First, to use art to highlight our shared humanity and emphasize that diversity is our greatest strength. Second, to provide valuable arts programming (murals, workshops, performances) for free in communities experiencing a lack of arts funding.
A key way we are funding the Art We There Yet project is through the sale of our music and art.
