Miriam Sagan is recently returned from an artist residency at Agate Fossil Beds National Monument in Nebraska! We’ve done a small suminagashi/book arts/poetry project to commemorate her time there, using poetry and sumi she created at the residency. To see all of the suminagashi, visit our Tumblr Project, Sumi-A-Day. This book will be on display at the offices of the National Park, along with the accompanying broadside. For more of the work we do together under our artist collective, check out Maternal Mitochondria!
Suminagashi in the Park will be up at the Railyard Park this Saturday! Come say hi. Here is a copy of the letter we sent to the participants–
Thanks to all the workshop participants who created suminagashi and poetry in the Railyard.
The pieces will be hanging in the park—informal opening Sat Sept 8, 3-5 pm.
We will be sitting outside the community classroom to say hi and direct you. We have woven together your words to make a long communal poem. You might not be able to identify your exact words or suminagashi but you are indeed part of the spirit of this mosaic. It is all of us together.
To find the installation:
At the community classroom face south, (your back to Paseo de Peralta). Walk towards the rainbow compass sculpture. Look for a group of evergreens. Discover our art and poetry!
It will be up for a month, so come by at your convenience. Bring your friends and enjoy a stroll!
We’ll be in touch if anything changes.
