Join Keep St Pete Lit in writing about artwork showing in Florida CraftArt’s exhibition “Dia de Los Muertos; A Celebration of Life.”
Dia de los Muertos Ekphrastic Workshop is a collaboration with Keep St. Pete Lit. Though storytelling is often a verbal or written presentation, stories surround us in every detail of our lives. Our imaginations soar when we see a whimsical piece, childhood memories are triggered by certain colors and shapes, textures remind us of another time in our lives. This exciting juried exhibition of original artwork by more than 43 artists showcases work based on Dia de los Muertos: A Celebration of Life. Participants will write a one-page ekphrastic story or poem inspired by the Florida CraftArts’ exhibition.
THIS CLASS WILL MEET AT FLORIDA CRAFTART to view the 68 pieces on display. You will pick the piece that most inspires you (no two writers will write about the same piece) and after viewing the work we will go to a classroom above the gallery to flesh out our thoughts/writing. Participants will then perform their work at in the Exhibition Gallery on Sunday, May 20 at 2 p.m. This class is limited to twelve participants. Cost is $20.
Dia de los Muertos Exhibition is sponsored by AARP.
