The art department at UAS has organized an open house for the public tonight, from 5-8 p.m. on the first floor of the Soboleff Building on the Auke Bay Campus. The event, organized to help encourage public interaction with the art department, will include studio tours, a photo booth, wood-fired pizza, silk-screening, sculpture and drawing demos, hands-on clay activities, live blues music and free catered food.
Also scheduled is a “One Million Bones” bone making workshop organized by MK MacNaughton. Participants can help make bones in the UAS pottery studio to help contribute to the national One Million Bones Project.
Another bone-making workshop is scheduled for
Sunday, Dec 2, from 2-4 p.m. at the Canvas.
The goal of both free workshops is to make 10,000 clay bones to help raise awareness about and end genocide in Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Additionally, the project encourages and empowers children and adults to speak up against injustice and recognize our common humanity.
