PARK Land Art

October 12 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

$5

A workshop exploring Richard Moya Park through its history and our own temporary sculptural works. This is for artists and non-artists.

Land Art: The practice of creating art in and from the surrounding landscape. We bring nothing to the site, and leave with nothing–working only with what we find there. All works will be temporary and made with found and natrual materials.

Odditree Society Facilitators: Angel Schatz is an urban farmer, wild-crafter, and forager of fungi and wild edibles. Ann Armstrong is an artist /cartographer/ observer that is obsessed with trees.

Schedule:

10am-10:20 am: Introductions and brief overview of the ecological and anthropological history of the area.

10:20-Noon: We’ll disperse and explore the territory with a couple loose assignments in hand. We’ll spend that time making our improvised pieces, and close by walking the site as a group to see everyone’s completed work. Work can be completed individually, or collaboratively.

RSVP: Tickets are a $5 donation that goes towards refreshments.

Further details on parking, attire, etc will be sent in advance of the event once you purchase a ticket. Regarding weather…a little rain won’t cancel the event, but a large thunderstorm might. Regardless, potential notice of cancellation–for whatever unforeseen reason–would be communicated through Eventbrite. If something unexpected comes up and you need to cancel, let us know 24 hours in advance of the event, and we will happily issue you a refund.

*This is a prototype for a series of future park-based workshops. The workshops will use the subjects of art and ecology to uncover each park’s sense of place.
