MTV stars seek to establish residential artists collective in Asheville

MTV stars bring Conscious Collective to Asheville

Press release:

ASHEVILLE, NC (December 13, 2013 )– Twin brothers Tyler and Vinny Trierweiler caught the attention of MTV producers with their unique ideas about a shift in human consciousness. The brothers will star in an upcoming episode of MTV’s award-winning documentary series True Life, set to air on January 4, 2014. The episode documents the lives of the twins over the course of a year, as they explore controversial and sometimes taboo ideas about the nature of reality.

Although the episode was filmed in Kalamazoo, MI, the twins have since moved to Asheville to pursue their latest idea; a residential community for artists based on conscious living. Deeming their brainchild the ‘Asheville Consciousness Collective’, Tyler are Vinny say their goal is to create a communal living space for artists, dedicated to provoking awareness to higher consciousness through creative expression. Residents will be comprised of artists from the fields of music, recording, performance, painting, photography, videography and writing.

The Trierweiler brothers are currently seeking a physical location for the collective, with hopes that the episode airing in January may aid in their search. Plans for the space include a meditation room, studio space, gallery, and video production room. An innovative video blog will serve as a way for members of the collective to reach out to the local community.

Tyler and Vinny aim to open the doors of the collective by February 1, 2014. Individuals interested in helping bring the project to fruition or becoming a member can visit the organization’s website at
