Official Sculpture Opening and Art Workshop for Kids

Kiser School and Barney & Smith sculptures

Hope you can come out to the opening for my sculptures on May 15th and sign your kids up for a workshop I'm doing on May 9th. 

On Saturday May 9th from 1pm to 3pm I’m going to be doing a workshop for children K-4 + Tweens at the Electra C. Doren Library. If you're in the Dayton area, consider signing up your kids. Spaces are limited. EVENT LINK

It’s called Designing Spaces Art Workshop and it is part of the ReImagining Works commission I did for the Dayton Metro Library. I’m going to take the kids through an ideation session where they pick something important in their lives, and sketch it out. Then I’m going to teach them the paper cutout techniques I used when I designed the sculptures for the Electra C. Doren reading terrace. Their artwork will be on display the following week at the sculpture opening and terrace dedication ceremony.

On Friday May 15th from 4pm to 6pm there is an opening for my sculptures at the Dayton Metro Library dedication ceremony for the new reading terrace at the Electra C. Doren Library. LIBRARY LINK 

Though you've been able to see the sculptures since January this is the official opening because it is now warm enough to hang out outside and enjoy the sculptures!

The event will have celebratory remarks, thanks and recognition to donations making the reading terrace possible, and ReImagining works will open the terrace and my sculptures in a ribbon cutting ceremony. I will be giving a brief presentation on the inspiration, process, and images for the sculptures. Then I will be on the terrace to give tours of the artwork and have conversations. An added plus is that there will be free hotdogs for the first ~200 people and entertainment by Lithuanian dancers. Though I have Lithuanian heritage, you will be glad to know, I am NOT going to be taking part in the dancing. 

Hope to see you at the opening!
