Members of the Oak Park River Forest High School Spoken Word Club will be performing results of a ekphrastic workshop at Gallery PINK. During a workshop earlier in the month, students wrote a spoken word response to a piece of artwork in the exhibit “Materials Obsession” On Saturday, April 30 at 1:30, the group will return to perform their results at Gallery PINK–without revealing which pieces of artwork inspired their writing. The public is welcome to attend this free event.
Materials Obsession: Gina Lee Robbins, Bobbi Meier and Linda Abrams present, Materials Obsession, a diverse collection of works that share common beginnings in the artists’ love for materiality. Their work is presented in conversation with one another, as meaning and intent are expressed through materials gathered from the earth and the recycling bin.
