Sticky, scratchy, slippery or soft, our surroundings stimulate our senses every day! On Nov. 19, Culture Vulture Saturday investigates textures in the environment and the imprint they make on us. From 10 am – 5 pm in the U of L Atrium, Culture Vultures can enjoy creating interesting art, exploring the U of L Art Gallery and Helen Christou Gallery and talking to staff about the current exhibitions, The Lion’s Share and Outlandish.
“We’ll be tracing our bodies onto newsprint and covering them from head to toe with rubbings of different textures, such as wood cuts, leaves, branches, or even electronic devices, such as keyboards and remote controls,” says Allison Spencer, Culture Vulture program coordinator. “It’s going to be fun discovering what kind of imprint our environment makes on us using paper and crayons.”
Everyone is invited! Refreshments are provided and as always, it’s free!
