Drawing Workshop hosted by Julia Vallera & Thomas Bosket
Monday, October 19, 2009 @ 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Parts and Labor Gallery at The New School
66 West 12th Street (Outside on the Street!)

Parts and Labor Gallery is inviting you to participate in an exploration in perception and interpretation. How do you describe an object or situation to another person? What do you choose to edit and why? How is your description interpreted by someone else? How is that information transformed into verbal communications and visual associations? This installation will take place in 4 hours. Participants will enter a truck and be randomly assigned to a station.  Two people at each station will proceed to describe and/or interpret what is being described through drawing, writing and color.  This is open to anyone and everyone.  Art and writing skills are not needed. If you have any doubts or questions please join us and give it a whirl!

The written and visual associations will be displayed on the walls of the gallery. After the event you will be able to hang and participate in a chat. There will also be a survey available and the results or this and the event will be relayed via our blog. Take it!!! More info:
