Escuela del Sol and Harwood Art Center invite you to Encompass, a unique multi-generational art event that takes place annually in March.
In life, in purpose, in expression, and in just about every other way imaginable, finding one’s way can be a tricky thing. There are so many ways to experience the world, and so many interesting paths to follow. So how do we ever figure out which ones jive with us?
Many of us seek out new experiences – around the block or around the world. And if luck is on our side, we often get to sample many flavors along our route to discovery.
Even more important than luck, however, is community. It is the textured and colorful asset that exposes us to new ideas and helps us nurture the things already near. And it is the very source that makes us tick over here at The Harwood and Escuela del Sol. Community guides us, inspires us, and helps us find our way.
The best thing to do with such wonderful wealth is to share it, of course. So every March we bring together rich slices of our community and host a multi-faceted, all-ages, multi-disciplinary creative event. We showcase our Harwood studio artists, our Montessori student artwork, renowned visual artists, musicians, and your very own imaginations.
What do we call an event that embraces so many ages, narratives, and visions, all in one building, all in one night? Encompass!
This Friday, March 1st, you are invited to Find Your Way here among our vibrant halls. Encompass: Find Your Way will feature two gallery exhibitions, open studios, collaborative art making projects and activities for all ages.
This year, Encompass revolves around the many interpretations of way finding -illustrated by young artists' experimentations with mapping and signage, emerging and established artists' considerations of narrative and perspective, and your exploration of art and art making at the event.
Additionally, 2013 also marks the first year that Harwood joins the National Hispanic Cultural Center to present Women & Creativity (a regional month-long celebration of creativity across the disciplines). We are simply thrilled to commemorate the kickoff of this year’s Women & Creativity at Encompass. We do hope you'll join us!
While we won’t make any absurd promises about you finding your way through the big questions in life this Friday, we are certain that a whammy-of-a-dose of creativity and amazing community will inspire your thoughts about life’s possibilities.
Read details about all of Encompass: Find Your Way.
Friday March 1st, 6-8 pm.
This event is FREE, but you might want your wallet for the treasures that you’re bound to discover (food, art, clothing, etc).
