SCRATCH: A Moving Sketch Workshop
Join artist and creative director of subterranean films Rosie Rowe, AV and film preservation specialist with the University Library, to explore the creative potential of film-scratching. Workshop attendees will learn how to manipulate found 16mm film to make original works of art, acquainting themselves with the physical properties of film and developing new creative skills in the process. Email Emily Morgan, assistant professor of art and visual culture, by Friday, March 6, to RSVP for this workshop.
This program is part of a series anchored by the reACT art exhibition titled #WomenKnowStuffToo, which is open from March 2–April 3 in the Reiman Gallery (lower level) of the Christian Petersen Art Museum in Morrill Hall. In conjunction with Women’s History Month, the purpose is to engage community members in an ongoing conversation celebrating women artists and makers, as well as their impact on the arts and expertise in the field.
#WomenKnowStuffToo is a partnership with University Museums, the Margaret Sloss Center for Women and Gender Equity, and the College of Design with additional support from the University Library, the Ames Public Library, Reliable Street and the Des Moines Art Center.
