Calling all Burlington visual artists, sculptors, designers, performers, filmmakers, sound artists and makers of all kinds! Are you interested in making temporary art projects but don’t know how to get started? Do you have an idea for an installation or performance you want to try?
Join artist Lisa Hirmer for a pop-up public art lab at Burlington Public Library – Central Branch. On March 11th and 12th, artists will learn about making temporary public art in an interactive workshop. Over this two-day workshop, artists will have the opportunity to create and develop an artwork concept among other artists.
We will then have the opportunity to test some of those ideas during a mini-event on Saturday, March 25, 2017. Micro-grants of up to $300 for materials will be available to help with the creation of those projects!
This project is part of the Cultural Nodes artist-in-residence project through Burlington Public Art. Over a six-month period, Lisa Hirmer will be conducting research into the establishment of ‘cultural nodes’ in Burlington. Cultural nodes are areas within the city (such as libraries) where residents can experience and share culture. As part of her work, Hirmer will be presenting a series of temporary art installations and performances.
Date: March 11 & 12, 2017*
Time: 1 – 4 p.m.
Location: Burlington Public Library – Central Branch, Centennial Hall
* Artists must commit to attending both days of the workshop
