In the Lab: an introduction – Part 2

Local artists, working in all creative media (including writers, musicians, performers, and visual artists) are invited to a cooperative studio environment to experiment with new media or innovative techniques. SAM provides basic materials and a guest artist to share ideas and inspiration in a low-stress, instruction-free open lab. If you are looking for the next direction to push your work, or just want to expand your current media, join this group of fellow contemporary artists from our community for a night in the lab. Participating artists are eligible to display artwork resulting from this experience in a week-long pop-up exhibition at SAM.

Lab hours: Thursday, March 19 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Open to adults only, Limit: 20
Registration Fee: $5, %10 discount for members
