Grass Men workshop with visiting artist, Ashley Peevor
July 29, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Join us for two community workshops with Visiting Artist, Ashley Peevor. Peevor constructs and grows living costumes fondly referred to as Grass Men. Grass Men is a part-sculpture, part-performance series that involves carefully crafted living costumes made from grass, flower and other flora.
These community workshops will open participants’ eyes to the unique potential for combining living art with nature; meet the artist; see Bernheim’s Grass Man as it grows; learn about the cultivation of living sculpture through seed growing. Most importantly – create your own wearable nature art (in the form of armbands, necklaces, tails, etc) to cultivate, then bring your work back to be a part of the Grass Men fun at CONNECT.
Attend one or both sessions! Workshops are free for Bernheim members. The weekend $5 per car environmental impact fee applies for non-members, though there is no additional charge for the workshop.
Registration required, as space is limited. Call (502)-955-8512 by 4 p.m. on the day prior to the program to reserve your spot.
All ages welcome. Children under 16 must be accompanied by adults.
Bernheim’s Imagine Greater Louisville 2020 grant, Seeds of CONNECTion is made possible by the Jennifer Lawrence Arts Fund at the Fund for the Arts in partnership with the Fund for the Arts.
