“I speak to these sculptures, wood prints, and paintings as I would to a friend over coffee or champagne.” –Ntozake Shange, Ridin’the Moon in Texas, 1987

Each participant will generate new work inspired by the museum collection and receive constructive, considered feedback toward revision and continued practice.
