Dear Diary by Josie Mai
When: Saturday September 1, 10 am to 11:30am
Where: The Percolator Artspace
What: Dear Diary will display paintings, drawings, and installation inspired by Josie Mai’s journal. This youth workshop will engage participants in a imaginative project that will be a part of Mai’s show. By simply signing their name boldly on a large piece of paper, and expanding creatively with their signature, they will create a grid of names for installation.
The show will be open on weekends through September, with a Final Fridays closing reception.
There are only ten spots available for this free workshop. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org!
