Creating art is part of the conversation
I am so excited to take CReATE STUDIO on a road trip to CMATO next Sunday November 10th.
The Museum’s NEW instillation series theme “Empathy, Beneath The Surface” thoughtfully considers the one year anniversary of The Wolsey Fires and Borderline Shooting through art. The conversations are sure to be ongoing and bring people together through works that center on thought, connection and healing. After all, art heals.
We’ll be bring a family fun component that invites kids and their families into the Empathy conversation through a hands-on project exploration- making rustic dolls. Using rustic materials and fabrics kids can dress their doll characters with inspiration from artist, Simphiwe Ndzube, one of the seven featured artists whose work with second-hand clothing is woven into his work.
As part of this family event we are asking for donations of gently used clothing in partnership with CMATO to donation to local organizations in support of those in need. We look forward t sharing this creative Sunday with you.
Clothing donations can be brought to CReATE Studio this week and next and marked CMATO to distinguish them from our other donations.
