Build a castle from paper plates. Illustrate a poem with tape and aluminum foil. Decorate yourself like a cupcake. The possibilities are endless at the improvisational art-making events called TASK parties.
To celebrate the first-ever International Sculpture Day, the International Sculpture Center and the Grounds For Sculpture will host a free community TASK party with internationally acclaimed artist Oliver Herring, the founder of TASK.
Participants of all ages and walks of life can take part in the free-form art event, collectively dreaming up instructions and carrying them out with the materials provided to them. The goal of TASK is to create community access to contemporary art in a way that is experimental, open-ended, and accessible.
The event will take place at the Grounds for Sculpture on April 24 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Participants will transform raw, everyday materials into inventive and participatory sculptural experiences. Donations of materials including paper, aluminum foil, saran wrap, markers, crayons, tape, paper products, balloons, and streamers are needed. To support the TASK Party through an art supply donation, email email@example.com or call (609) 586-0616, x224 by March 27. All donors will be listed as event sponsors on the IS Day TASK Party website.
The event is free and open to the public. To register for the TASK party or to learn more, visit www.sculpture.org/task, call (609) 689-1051, x302, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
