Tearing Down Boxes and Embracing Change

November 5 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Fiber artists from two guilds unite to create an art exhibit that breaks us out of our boxes and embraces change!  Learn more in a Trail Talk session with fiber artists and actors who have portrayed artists dealing with change, as they discuss art as a vehicle for healing and growth.

To broaden ourselves we often need to break out of our boxes – religion affiliations, circle of friends, social groups, etc. Doing so means making an intentional choice to enter uncomfortable or challenging spaces to affect or experience change. Artists from INFiber and Akomo Ntoso have partnered across guilds to share ideas and expose each other to new points of view, techniques, and ways of doing. Their work will be displayed for the public to interpret and during a Trail Talk session at the Phoenix Theater, fiber artists and actors with the production Alabaster will join in conversation to discuss art as a tool for healing, growth, and change.

Doors open at 5:30pm to view the exhibit with a panel discussion occurring from 6:30-8pm.

Visit the exhibit from Nov. 4 through Dec. 23 (Tues. – Fri., 1-4pm) at the Phoenix Theatre Cultural Center.

A partnership between INFiber, Akoma Ntoso Modern Quilt Guild of Central Indiana, and Phoenix Theatre Cultural Center.
