📆 Sun. 2/9 – Changing Our World with Public Posters. In this hands-on workshop participants will generate ideas for public posters, thinking about how we can turn political or social frustration into positive and effective action to create real transformations in our world. Together we will brainstorm ideas and experiment with text and image layout to create dynamic public posters.
Lena Wolff is an interdisciplinary artist whose work extends out of American craft and folk-art traditions while also being connected to geometric abstraction, social practice and feminist art. Wolff’s broad but interconnected practice includes works on paper, drawing, collage, sculpture, murals, text-based pieces, embroidery, public projects, music and frequent collaborations with artists across disciplines. In 2017 she released a series of public posters that became widely distributed and adapted for different cities across the Bay Area, starting with "Berkeley Stands United Against Hate' followed by a run of posters in English and Spanish aimed at encouraging greater voter participation in elections. Wolff has exhibited her work widely and was honored in fall 2019 by the City of Berkeley her work as an artist engaged in social practice. View her work at lenawolff.com
