An Art Laboratory for Playful Problem Solving
January 28, 2023 – May 14, 2023
Thursdays, 5 – 7 pm PT
Saturday & Sunday, 12 – 4 pm PT
Inspired by the exuberantly unpredictable exhibition Out of Joint, featuring the work of local artist Joan Tanner, the Family Resource Center is transformed into an “art laboratory,” a space for experimentation where energy, uncertainty, and opportunity are the currents of chance that spark creativity.
Visitors are invited to contribute to the large-scale collaborative construction, to make smaller-scale sculptures using a variety of everyday building materials: bird netting, metal sheeting, newspaper, zip ties, wood, and more, and to draw on paper using oil pastels, chalk, and conte crayons. A word bank provides potential prompts for ideas or themes. .
