Organic Art Action - Saturday, June 25

This Saturday (June 25, 1-3pm), we're having an Organic Art Action.

We'll be gathering to collectively create public art using found natural elements (e.g., twigs, leaves, 'weeds', rocks, etc.).

Meet at Eau Claire Plaza (map is approximate), near the Prince's Island Park pedestrian bridge. We'll go west along the river pathway (on the downtown side of the river, in the direction of the 10 Street bridge), creating organic art along the way. If you're late, just walk the path along the river until you find us.

You can download and print a PDF poster of this info (about 1MB file size) to promote the event.

Some inspiration: Chelsea's post on Andy Goldsworthy's art.

Andy Goldsworthy

Andy Goldsworthy is an artist who uses natural materials to create temporary outdoor sculptures. He works with nature rather than against it, using materials and formations that will not harm or otherwise modify their natural environment. All of these pieces are constructed from meticulously gathered and positioned organic objects.
