NOMAD LAB at CalArts
One of the highlights was our first art exhibition and reading at CalArts, organized by NOMAD LAB teaching artist Ebony Williams. Ebony taught the Creative Writing and Puppet Workshop and had a group of 8 eager and really talented young participants. They worked on fictional stories and characters, and designed and created puppets (ragdolls) that represented alter egos of the artists. The process of making the puppets was quite laborious and very thoughtful: from selecting the color of their character's skin, to writing words onto their character's body's, and designing their puppets attributes... every step was an exercise on self knowledge, a game of "identity-making"...
This work will be on exhibit at the Riverside Art Museum as well! Show is opening tomorrow at 7pm. Come by and support the work of these remarkable artists.
