We will meet to brainstorm beginning prompt ideas, select series time slots, and enjoy creative company. The Exquisite Project is an experiment in art and words & a special exhibit within the Artists & Writer’s Showcase. Each series in the Project consists of alternating works from three artists and three writers.

Participants will have one month to complete their pieces. Writers will be contributing a one-page poem, essay, short story, or other written work. Artists will be creating a visual work, such as a sculpture, painting, drawing, engraving, watercolor, mixed media, etc.

  • The first person in a series creates a work (visual or written) based on a prompt, and then passes a copy of that work on to the second person.
  • The second person will then create a work, inspired by the previous one in some way, and that piece is then passed on to the third person, and so on to the end of the series.
  • The catch is you only get to see the work of the person immediately before yours, until the entire project is revealed at the opening reception Saturday, April 2, 2016 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • The pieces are displayed consecutively, so the viewer may see the “story” unfold.

If you have any questions, or are interested in participating but unable to attend the planning meeting, please contact Andrea Buka at teenlibrarian@ledyard.lioninc.org or 860.464.9912.
