Three flowers made of silk and resinYou’re invited to come participate in the Our Place In This World community art project being held at the MBNCA on Saturday, May 19th, 2018 from Noon–3pm.

Artist Rebecca Wachtman will guide you through creating a piece of art cloth out of reclaimed silk. The art cloth you create, will represent your unique place within your community.

The art cloth will later be used to create three-dimensional resin sculptures which will join other art cloth sculptures on interactive display installations.

These displays will be shown at various locations including the MBNCA.
