Drawing Tending Tying: An Art and Rope Experiment

3:30pm CST A performance featuring guests Sharon Pink and Shel Stefan (livestream on Zoom and in-person)

5:30 pm to 7:00pm CST Artist talk and guest-facilitated live model figure drawing session (in-person only!)

In Drawing Tending Tying: An Art and Rope Experiment, all are welcome to witness as two queer lovers come together to experiment where art meets kink. Watch Shel create a set of gesture study life drawings of their partner Sharon while she uses rope to self-tie. This performance will be live streamed from LA&M via Zoom, as well as open to LA&M guests.

Post live stream and in the LA&M space, Shel will give a short artist talk and slideshow, and then lead folx in a live figure drawing session with Sharon as their figure model.

The link to the performance livestream will be posted on the day of the event. To attend in person, purchase regular admission to the museum online or at the door.
