Peripatetic artist Mimi Cherono Ng’ok leads a zine-making session and invites us into her creative process inspired by travels, reading, and listening. Gather stories from a spring afternoon walk downtown or create a visual narrative while listening to a short story. Come dressed for the walk. This event will take place at Casey Droege Cultural Productions in downtown Pittsburgh.
Mimi Cherono Ng’ok is a Nairobi-based artist participating in the Carnegie Int’l, 57th ed., 2018.
Tam O’Shanter Drawing Sessions
These creative sessions are for those who draw and for those who don’t. Explore contemporary art through improvised forms of drawing with artists and organizers of the Carnegie International. Sketching, doodling, cartooning, mapping, writing, and marking are among the many modes that will bring us together.
Named after the original art classes for young people that Carnegie Museum of Art has been holding since 1929; the tam o’shanter, or tam, is a Scottish beret—oft adorned by a pompom.
