Community Mapping at the Library

15 Jul

07-15-2017 to 07-15-2017 – Visit whereABOUTS in the Art Truck at this community mapping event. Framework Arts will be on hand to help participants map visions of our current and future creative communities on jumbo paper maps. We’ll utilize chalk, charcoal, and our collective imagination.

Jaime Salvador Castillo and Michael Anthony García’s whereABOUTS is an immersive and interactive installation that investigates location, identity and community. Students learn about mapping as a way to understand and express relationships between identity and place. Then, they explore their own communities through creative map-making of their neighborhoods. The whereABOUTS installation aims to connect students from different communities around the state by providing opportunities for visitors to learn about experiences other than their own.

About the Art Truck:

The Art Truck is a traveling educational art exhibit that takes exciting and accessible contemporary art, created by leading local and national artists, directly to schools and community venues across the state. Each visit by the Art Truck includes the expertise of a trained museum educator who leads students through a meaningful exploration of the current exhibition.
