Art and Poetry Workshop with Dr. Denise Lajimodiere

December 17, 2018, 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm

Inspired by the overhead electric power lines, specifically the parallel circuit lines that look like dresses, help create a sculptural poem with artists Denise Lajimodiere and Laura Youngbird. Poems composed during this workshop will be embossed onto circular tins for a sculptural jingle dress. The dress will be built out of chicken wire and other materials. Please bring forlorn pieces of hardware that may be floating around in your junk drawer to add to the dress.

The collaborative sculpture and poem will be presented in the Spring 2019 exhibition Dress: Work by Contemporary Native American Women Artists.

FREE; registration required click here. No previous artistic skills are necessary.
