SIGN MAKING WORKSHOP
Friday, April 14, 3:00-4:00 p.m.
King School Museum of Art (KSMoCA) @ MLK, Jr. School
The yard sign has become a staple in how we visualize the American political system. We place the yard sign of our chosen politician in front of our houses, at intersections on the highway, outside of polling places close to an election. These signs are almost always the same; the same size, the same colors, the same block letters, just with a different name and a new year. The artist, Hank Willis Thomas, and his political Super PAC, For Freedoms, invites you to take these typical yard signs and make them your own. Using the For Freedoms yard signs, participants respond to the prompts “Freedom From…” or “Freedom Of…” through collage of images, text, and drawing. Share what issues are important to you in this sign making workshop!
The artist will not be present. Workshop open to the public.
