At this public art workshop, participants will examine the visuals in Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine and study various artists who use collage to address issues of identity and social justice. They will be provided with materials to make their own collages and write artist statements that will be hung in a gallery at the culminating event on March 28th. This workshop will be led by local visual artist and poet Anika Love.
