An opportunity from The Center for Emerging Visual Artists. 

Participate in a community based project this summer with artist Amanda Granum.

About the Project: Mapping Spaces. 

In this project, seniors and students would be grouped into pairs and create printed and painted collage designs based on abstractions of space from an aerial perspective. The spaces may include rooms, houses and buildings that you have lived in or outdoor spaces you have used. These collage designs will used to create a large-scale map of Philadelphia on the wall, ceiling and floor. The work will use narrative investigation to explore the meaning of place, mapping and the commonalities of the collective human experience of memory as it relates to living spaces and the city at large.

Workshop will run June 26th through August 21st .*
