Due to COVID-related difficulties, our originally scheduled duo, Miatta Kawinzi and Nora Treatbaby, is unexpectedly unable to join us this season. However, we will still do the first the cclouds (a rain plan version) on Saturday March 13, 2021, from 12pm-1pmCT on Zoom.

Scott Vincent Campbell and Kirsten Ihns will share their work, and will also present a dialogue-through-objects, constructed collaboratively with each other’s work. The event is free and open to the public.
