APRIL-MAY- ARTWRITE COLLECTIVE
The Artwrite Collective uses art as a tool for social justice through creative youth development, activist art partnerhsips, and arts landscapes diversification. Through their Imaging Worlds residency through the Bubbler, ArtWrite artists Rhea Ewig, Mike L'roy, Jay Ludden, and Alaura Seidl will dream up and visualize healthy and just futures alongside library patrons. Through giant books, talking paintings, expressive food, and other experiments, they'll overtake the Bubbler with visions for what a thriving world might look, smell, taste, sound, and feel like.They'll need your help building their otherwordly installations.
