Event Details

Saturday, December 1, 2018
1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

This participatory workshop takes place alongside Bryan McGovern Wilson’s work “The Atomic Priesthood,” part of the Symbiotic Spheres exhibition in the Museum of American Glass. Attendees are invited to imaginatively engage the work and the questions, stories, and puzzles it provokes. With guidance from Wilson and Dr. Howell, attendees will first create a sketch and then write a brief story inspired by the work. Both sketch and story will seek to send messages through vast stretches of “deep time,” reaching across centuries and even millennia, enabling participants to wrestle with fundamental questions about how humanity communicates via symbols, signs, and stories.

Sketching materials will be provided while supplies last. This workshop falls on WheatonArts Family Days! Presented by PNC Arts Alive!, offering FREE admission to all visitors.
