Nature of Reality - Collage Workshop and Artist Lecture

Nature of Reality is an experiential art-making experience which attempts to ground and focus our inner selves through art and organic natural material.

Join us for an illustrated lecture about a work of contemporary sculpture by internationally-renowned mixed-media artist Doris Salcedo. The lecture will explore the way Salcedo’s sculptural installation titled Plegaria Muda (2009) uses earth-matter to express the concept of death and memory. The lecture will be followed by a collage art-making experience using recycled materials and inspired by Salcedo’s Plegaria Muda.

This two hour workshop will be taught by Liz Lopez. Liz is a digital artist and contemporary art historian whose work and research uncovers facets of the global human consciousness and identity. Join us for a nurturing night among fellow creatives in the DFW area to discuss mindfulness, art, our natural environment and the need for a substantial future.
