Loves and Fears Closing Party Fri Oct. 14

Its the last call for the Loves & Fears Project at 2208 MLK Avenue SE!

In conjunction with the openings at the Anacostia Arts Center down the road, I’ll be hosting the last studio hours this year to participate in the project.  It has been really wonderful having a chance to set up shop in the community and get to know you all.  I hope that those of you who have passed and by and thought about participating will do so, and that more urban adventurers will use this as an opportunity to cross the great boundary channel that is the Anacostia. Treat yourself!

2208 Martin Luther King Avenue SE

29__dsc1965Loves & Fears is a community project which asks people to share their loves and fears, then sit for an accompanying portrait. The work is printed and posted around town, and will be used for publication and social media sharing.  All participants will be emailed a copy of their portrait and text.

This project was sponsored by the Anacostia Arts Center with support from the National Endowment of the Humanities.

The Loves & Fears Project returns to Anacostia

lovesinstall-1

I’m pleased to announce that the Loves & Fears project has returned to southeast Washington at 2208 Martin Luther King Ave SE, within walking distance from the Anacostia Metro.  Hosted by Immersion, the brain child of the Arch Development Corp and supported with funds from the National Endowment in the Arts; Immersion brings together creative place makers to host participatory projects in the Anacostia Arts Center, and in  my case at a newly renovated row house next to Martha’s Table Outfitters on MLK near the Big Chair.

What is Loves and Fears you ask?  It is a simple concept.  What brings us together and what tears us apart? Love and fear.  I’m asking people to share their loves and fears then I take their portraits and place their portraits and words around town.  I’ve got other ideas for the project too, once I get enough participants.

So come on down, I have five sessions left. Thursdays 1 – 7 pm and Saturday 12 – 5 pm.

2208 MLK Ave SE.  Near the Anacostia Metro.
