Bike The Art

Bike The Art

Bubbler, Central Library
07/09/2017
1:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us for Madison's #BikeTheArt tour on Sunday, July 9, 2017.
Enter Central Library at the side door on Mifflin St. NOTE: Only the Bubbler Room will be open from 1:30-2:00. The rest of the library will be closed all day.

Bike the Art is a monthly curated bicycle tour of local art spaces. As always, come for all or part of the tour. It's free and open to the public.

SCHEDULE:

1:30-2:00pm The Bubbler at Madison Public Library: Memory Cloths Circle - take home portable embroidery kit!

2:25-3:30pm Madison Circus Space - Try out the circus arts like juggling, acroyoga and hooping! (Fill out the online waiver in advance to save time.)

3:40-4:00pm Baraboo Woodworks - Tour and demos!

4:00-5:00pm One-One Thousand - Try shibori dyeing and enjoy a few libations!

The July tour on Sunday, July 9, 2017, will focus on opportunities to “make and do,” starting at 1:30pm at The Bubbler, Madison Public Library’s makerspace, featuring their current artist-in-residence: Memory Cloths Circle. This project evolved from the 2013 MMOCA Triennial as a Relational Art project at Lakeside Coffee House where people were invited to tell stories and embroider their memories. Participants will have a chance to learn more about the project and join the Memory Cloth Circle members in exploring their own experiences through the creation of their own unique memory cloth. Don’t worry about rushing the process along - the group will be sending portable embroidery kits with each participant as they head out for the rest of the tour. The Bubbler at Madison Public Library is a hub that connects artists to the community and the community to artists through free hands-on workshops, community-wide initiatives, exhibitions, and events.

The tour will leave The Bubbler at 2:00pm and arrive at Madison Circus Space at 2:25pm, where participants will have the opportunity to learn to juggle, give hooping a try, test out acroyoga, and sample other circus arts. The Madison Circus Space exists to be a home for the circus arts in Madison. MCS welcomes clubs and classes in addition to providing a practice space for dedicated performers and hobbyists. Juggling, German wheel, stiltwalking, aerial arts, acrobatic yoga, and hoop dancing are just a few of the activities that take place in the space. MCS holds workshops and events that are open to the community and meant to foster appreciation for the variety of circus-related talent and creativity in Madison.

At 3:30pm, we will continue to Baraboo Woodworks, arriving at 3:40pm for a tour and demo in their sawmill, shop & showroom.
We’ll finish next door at the new One-OneThousand studio from 4:00-5:00pm, where participants can try their hand at shibori dyeing and enjoy a few libations. One-OneThousand is a creative studio and membership business for designers, creators, and makers of handmade goods to commune, collaborate, and grow. One-OneThousand aims to help local maker businesses thrive by equipping them with the business skills, resources, and connections they need to grow and provide an outlet for hobbyists to explore their creative capabilities and test the boundaries of making things by hand.

Bike the Art tours are being scheduled each month from May through October. Most stops feature special activities or receptions, including artist/curator talks, food art, video screenings, performances, hands-on experiences and more. The next tour will take place on Sunday, August 20 and will feature artwork in public and outdoor spaces, ending at the new Makeshift Festival at Olbrich Park.

Bike the Art is sponsored by Dane Arts and endorsed by the Madison Arts Commission. Additional support is provided by: Artist & Craftsman, Cadence Coffee, Cafe Domestique, Humble Pie, Machinery Row Bicycles, Old Sugar Distillery, Promega Corporation, Underground Food Collective, and other partners

Affirmative Art - Empower Your Dreams

Affirmative Art - Empower Your Dreams

Goodman South Madison Library
07/10/2017
3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

With Affirmative Art you draw your dreams - what you truly want in life - and create action steps to empower your dreams.

Participate in an Affirmative Art session to share your dreams with other people, and together encourage each other to achieve your goals.

Affirmative Art is a grassroots organization which uses art to empower one to realize their life goals through individual and community building. The Affirmative Art concept asks the individual, regardless of his or her educational background, social status and race, to use art to say “Yes” to future dreams instead of saying “No, it is not possible.' Realizing that saying “Yes” through visual art is not enough, Eirik Jarl Trondsen and his co-creators developed concrete tools to help people identify and actualize their dreams with a two-phase group exercise followed by individual implementation phase called Affirmative Art Alignment and Action Steps.
