Artful Words: When Copying Isn’t Bad

Event Details:

Sunday, August 7, 2011, 12pm
Hammer Museum, UC Los Angeles

In this workshop, copying is not just allowed; it is encouraged! The only rule is that the phrases you copy from your favorite song, book, or story should be used to make new art. Join art educator and poet Theresa Sotto in creating “artful words” inspired by artist Ed Ruscha, a master of the art of making new art from old writings. Ages 10–14.

The Hammer’s free collaborative workshops, presented with 826LA, are designed for groups of up to 20 students. Reservations are encouraged. Please visit or call 310-305-8418.

ALL HAMMER PUBLIC PROGRAMS ARE FREE. Seating is on a first come, first served basis. Hammer members receive priority seating, subject to availability. Reservations not accepted, RSVPs not required.

Parking is available under the museum for $3 for 3 hours.
