Event Type: Adult Program Date: 7/26/2017 Start Time: 6:00 PM End Time: 8:00 PM
We invite our community to join with us for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work with artist Barbara Cooper on a new, temporary art installation for the Barrington Area Library atrium. Co-commissioned by the Barrington Area Library and the Lake Barrington office of Bartlett Tree Experts, this unique, site-specific work will reflect our ever-deepening understanding of how all of life is networked together.
Barbara Cooper is an award-winning, internationally-shown artist. She is committed to working with community members on the piece, and to using recycled materials whenever possible. The final work will be unveiled at a public reception on Sunday, September 24, 2017, and remain on exhibit for approximately one year. We need your help to create this extraordinary work of art! Join us for one, two, or all of the following workshop dates:
Wednesday, July 26, 6-8 PM
Sunday, August 27, 2-4 PM
More workshop dates will be available in August and September. Please email Public Information Manager Karen McBride at the library: firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for the date(s) of your choice, or to inquire about later workshops. Bring a family member, friend, neighbor. Art collectives - bring your whole group! This project is appropriate for children ages 10 and up, so families are welcome.
We are also seeking materials to use for the project. Are you able to donate long lengths of twine, rope, paper, or fabric? For paper and fabric, we are particularly seeking materials in natural colors and finishes. Contact Karen McBride at email@example.com if you are able to help.
