CEC Artslink presents Publicly Creative: A Public Art Workshop. Public art is a fast-growing discipline with many unexplored opportunities for artists and communities. This workshop is a hands-on intensive introduction to the field, outlining resources, logistics, opportunities, and examples of successful collaborations. Recognizing artistic initiative as a valuable asset and a catalyst for a dialogue and transformation, we will explore how site-specific collaborations in varied cultural, geographic and political areas can influence business, social awareness and economic development. Encouraging close inspection of the particular issues faced by a specific New York community chosen by the participants, the workshop and the resulting public art work(s) will provide a unique platform for the participants and the public to explore and appropriate the city’s landscapes.

"Free Poetry" update.

I was able to layout and print 4 different Sufi poems, with an image on the reverse. They are diecut cardstock used for invitations etc. Don't produce very sharp images, so I stuck with found images that were either not too detailed or were soft in nature. Since the research time was so short, I had to rely on Rumi a bit more than I would have liked, but all 4 short pieces are lovely and I think if someone is at all open to them, they will enjoy them and serve to 'open a door' to further thinking.

Hope to see you at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal (5:45+)... I've made 150 cards. No idea if I'll go home with 149 or give them all away in 3 minutes. This will be fun.
