Sumi Ink Club is a Los Angeles-based drawing collective founded in 2005 by Sarah Anderson and Luke Fischbeck. The group holds regular open meetings to execute topsy-turvy, detailed, collaborative drawings using ink on paper. In each of its permutations, Sumi Ink Club uses group drawings as a means to open and fortify social interactions that bleed into everyday life. Sumi Ink Club is non-hierarchical: all ages, all humans, and all styles.
This exhibit offers the chance for museum visitors to witness the creation of art and participate in its creation as well, thereby providing a very clear and distinct departure from the standard museum experience. We are excited to give the public the opportunity to make choices and engage in activities that will vary the experience from person to person. Visitors are invited to participate in workshops, performances, and other hands-on events. Join the Sumi Ink Club on May 10, 11, and 12 from noon to 4 p.m. to collaboratively create the exhibit. No experience necessary, but enthusiasm helps!
Please join us on May 22, 2010 for the opening reception for both Sumi Ink Club and Seeing and Saying. The event is open to Julia Morgan Society members only from 6:00-7:00 p.m. RAM members and the general public are invited to join us from 7:00-9:00 p.m.
