Event Details
Event Title:Visual Arts Center presents WORK PARTY in HECHO FARM (More Information)
Event Description:

HECHO FARM is a stage for the continued growth of artist Cruz Ortiz’s lovesick alter ego Spaztek, as well as an exploration of the material, social, and political possibilities of collaboration within an art education context. In his exhibition, Ortiz transforms the VAC’s Arcade gallery into a working “farm,” fleshed out with utilitarian sculptures, drawings, collages, hand-pulled screen-printed posters, multi-media text works, and perhaps even a pirate radio station. Join Ortiz for a free workshop in HECHO FARM that addresses the theme of utopian dreaming and printmaking. Participants will collaboratively devise a project that may involve drawing, sculpture, performance, screen-printing, radio programs, and more with the results becoming a part of the exhibition on view. All materials will be provided, including a BBQ lunch.

Capacity is limited to 30 participants; please contact Xochi Solis at xochisolis@utvac.org by November 9 to reserve your spot.
