Richmond Art Gallery and the Richmond Media Lab host a monthly evening of hands-on art and music making.
Marina Szijarto will be our guest artist in March, working with participants on the art of ‘creative public actions’ to develop costume elements or props inspired by the photographic works of Meryl McMaster, that can be used in public gatherings, peace marches, or arts events. Participants are also invited to create music and remixes during short demonstrations on the DJ equipment held throughout the session.
Free admission, all art materials and equipment provided.
Recommended for ages 14+
