hammered copper leaves for collaborative public sculpture titled Part You

Part You - a collaboration between artist and community, encouraging all to break from routine, use your hands to create, and raise money for others to do the same in the process


Be a part of something bigger than yourself -- join me in the making of an interactive art piece. Learn to press, hammer and form copper foil into 3-dimensional leaf shapes to create components for a sculpture. Together we will create a giant exploding leaf pile, reminiscent of one you’d jump in as a kid when a sense of wonder was more easily found in simple pleasures. You’ll be able to see your handiwork installed in a show at Traver Gallery January-February of 2017.

Once complete, the sculpture will be donated to the annual Pratt art auction to raise money for art classes for under-served teens.

Saturday, September 22nd

South Park Library, 10th Anniversary Party - 12:30-2:00pm     8604 8th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98108
