Ripple Effect Exhibit and Postcard Workshop

January 12, 2013 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


We’ll be taking in the Ripple Effect: Currents of Socially Engaged Art exhibit at the Art Museum of the Americas, part of the Organization of American States.

We’ll be joined by artist and filmmaker Mark Strandquist, who is one of the featured artists in this exhibit that showcases and models using art for social change. Strandquist’s particular project, Write Home Soon, engages people to consider spaces, real or metaphorical, that they have lost. Poignant and powerful, it will affect you deeply.

Mark will be with us as we view the exhibit and he’ll lead a postcard workshop where we create and install our own postcards. Cary Umhau will also lead us in a conversation around loss.

A great show for teenagers too. Some folks have said they’d be bringing people they are mentoring, for example.
