Sheet Art: Paint It, Wash It Away
Appalachian State students and local passers-by are invited to stop by Sanford Mall on the first three Monday’s of October (Oct. 1st, 8th, and 15th, weather permitting*) from noon to 1 p.m. to participate in a pop up collaborative art project happening in correspondence with October: A Month to Celebrate You. Those interested are welcome to paint directly on several bed-sheet canvases that will be hanging up on the mall. Volunteers can “paint away,” so to speak, thoughts, images, and messages of which they want to cleanse themselves and let go. These phrases and images will then be washed away with water on site, leaving only a trace of color behind, allowing for more cleanse painting to continue on the canvases. Later in the month, the sheets will be dried and hung up on view for the public.
*Events will take place on the mall on Monday, Oct. 1st, 8th, and 15th from noon to 1 p.m., weather permitting. Should it be cold, rainy, etc. on any of these dates, the event will be canceled for that day.
