Tues., Oct.15, Environmental Collage Making, 6:00 p.m. with artist Anayansi Ricketts

Join us for a hands on collage making workshop. In her book, The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History, Elizabeth Kolbert lays out the facts, we are in the midst of cataclysmic environmental change. Come explore the problems we face and the solutions we might employ. In this workshop we will collage photo essays that tell environmental tales. As our inspiration we will use the book and the planet.  What themed collage work would you like to produce that raises awareness of the environment in which we find ourselves? Come investigate the concept of seeking environmental balance. Instructor: Anayansi Ricketts. Space is limited and first come, first served. Each participant will take home their own small collage.

This program is a part of the 2019-2020 One Book, One Chicago season, exploring the theme Season For Change through the book The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert. For more information, visit www.onebookonechicago.org.
