African American
Paper Quilts

Saturday, March 10, 1–3 PM

 

 

 

Please join us for an afternoon workshop with artist and COLA 2018 Fellowship recipient June Edmonds as she guides us through her improvisational process of creating an abstract mosaic-style collaged paper quilt. Using vibrant and pearlescent watercolors with other media, you will create your own artwork by exploring a variety of brushstrokes, motifs, mark making and patterns inspired by African American quilts.

Join us for an evening of DJ beats and spoken word performances by Los Angeles
based artists. This open-mic session will showcase aspiring performers and
writers in a timely gathering of local voices addressing national issues of race and
citizenship. Music and poetry will be inspired by the book Citizen: An American
Lyric by Claudia Rankine.

 

Featured performers are provided through partnership with Get Lit – Words Ignite.
