Growing with Words

Installations, Class/Workshop

Surel's Place artist-in-resident Laura Pellegrinelli is a leader in the creation of participatory public art. Her work is based on the collective creative process as she involves people gathering materials. In this workshop, participants will give shape to a public artwork together. Using the word and idea of "Growth" as a prompt, this workshop will focus on creating a site- specific installation exploring words as dialogues (ideas and creative process) using paper medium with written words as material (word stamps on paper). Together, participants will figure out how to realize an installation: an artpiece, a performance related to those words-in order to give shape to the words. Ms. Pellegrinelli draws on her experience as an artist, art mediator, and an art researcher to guide the group. This workshop is modeled after a public art project rooted in her own small country in Emilia Romagna, Italy. This workshop continues on June 1st. You are encouraged to participate in both workshops, but it is also fine to only join one. Your registration is good for both workshops.
