Want to step into the past? The Princeton community is invited to join in a free art-making workshop with our spring Artist-in-Residence Onome Olotu.
During her residency, Onome has created individual 8×10″ pre-printed panels of Princeton-area historical landmarks. Participants of this drop-in style workshop will embellish the panels with their own ‘history’ to become a part of Princeton past. Each individual work will be assembled into one large community ‘postcard’, to be displayed in August 2023 during the annual Witherspoon-Jackson Neighborhood Joint Effort/Safe Streets event.
Onome will provide printed postage stamps and postmark stencils to ‘stamp’ your postcard. Participants are encouraged to bring personal photographs of themselves, family, or friends to use (not larger than 5 inches; photocopying is available). Written notes, letters, a few sentences of poetry, can be included on a postcard and are perfect to bring with you. All items should be small and light enough to fit on the 8×10 paper and will become a permanent part of this community art project. Some materials can be provided if needed.
Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to not only work with a young, exciting artist, but to be a part of a community art project that will connect the present to the past.
Come and go, or stay for the duration of the workshop. RSVPs are appreciated, but not required. Workshop is filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
