Creative Endeavors: Come Help Install A Giant Rangoli!

Looking for a creative endeavor? Next week, artist Khaldoune Bencheikh  and I will be working with the Columbia community to install Rangoli: Giant Bird Feeder. The rangoli, believed to welcome good luck and fortune, is a traditional folk art of India using natural materials in a decorative floor pattern.

Rangoli Project at the TAPPS Center for the Arts 2011

Please join us! Stop by the corner of Lincoln and Lady Streets during the day April 24-26 (Tuesday-Thursday) to add your creative touch to the project which aims to energize communities about the value of art as a tool for healthy and creative self expression. 

Bring one or more brightly colored, natural items that can be used to feed birds native to the SC Midlands area including berries, spices, bird seed, cut flowers, fruit, fruit peels, herbs, and nuts.

The exhibit will be a part of the Install It 2 exhibits for  Artista Vista 2012, the Midlands largest 3 day gallery art crawl.
