@ the Fowler Museum

Word-jamming! UCLA Arts Party @ the Fowler

Italian artist Alighiero Boetti often incorporated phrases in his embroidered work, sometimes in stacked blocks of letters and other times in messages to be read vertically or horizontally, not unlike a crossword puzzle. Come celebrate the exhibition Order and Disorder: Alighiero Boetti by Afghan Women with a night of games, wordplay, communal art-making, music and more:

Concept to Collaboration Artists Involving Others

Help create a collaborative embroidery with “renegade crafter” Jenny Hart, who will explore how collaborators affect the creative process. Hart will direct the creation of a large embroidered work featuring wordplay, handwriting and embroidery. Your participation in this piece is not only invited―it's necessary for its creation! The resulting work will be displayed during this year’s final Fowler Out Loud on May 31.

Legendary (Drag Queen) Bingo!

Legendary Bingo comes to the Fowler with a drag queen hostess, crazy call-backs, prizes and surprises!
