Road Trip is a collaborative one-day celebration between two artist run spaces sitting on opposite sides of the Missouri border. In this live streamed workshop we will be creating quick art objects that respond to written instructions delivered in the mail, which include materials that are reflective of each Kansas City, MO and Granite City, IL. Participants need no former training in art, and are encouraged to hang out, have a good time, and explore these materials creatively with one another. Following the workshop, each city group will discuss the other’s work. Art and processes used during Road Trip will be documented by each organization and turned into a zine which will be freely distributed to each individual who comes to the event.
About Open House:
Open House is an experimental and collaborative neighborhood arts project located inside a single-family house in KCMO. They provide space for artists to explore their practice, provide a platform for immersive experiences, encourage collaboration, and help stage communal gatherings. Open House is partially funded through an ArtsKC Inspiration Grant.
