GERTRUDE’S Artist Salon at the Mills is the site of informal, semi-monthly artist-generated/artist-hosted conversations. Join us for idle conversation, heated exchange and the sporadic, sometimes thematic exploration of ideas that grow out of and into art.
SPECIAL SUMMER EDITION: GERTRUDE'S GOES OUTSIDE
Thursday, August 14 | 7pm
Salon conversation and ping pong game hosted by BCA Summer Public Art Resident Liz Nofziger
BCA Plaza | Free
Stop by for lemonade and conversation around the topic "RULES OF THE GAME," an informal artist-generated/artist-hosted get-together at GERTRUDE’S, the artists’ lounge and lab at the BCA’s Mills Gallery. Conversation will evolve into actual play - come show us your skills, or pick up some new ones on Nofziger's uniquely configured table. All levels welcome.
Artists, athletes, gamers, sports fans, audiences, students – if you are curious and/or opinionated about the many issues raised by creative consideration of topics such as rules and play – tell us about it!
