Free Art Day at Frisbie St. this Sunday from 1-5 pm


Inspired by the book You are Here: Personal Geographies and Other Maps of the Imagination by Katharine Harmon on Sunday, Nov. 15 from 1 to 5 pm we'll be making maps at Frisbie St.

Come explore some aspect of your inner or outer world. Create a visual map of the territory and discover new dimensions. We'll be creating our maps using collage materials and other art supplies. Let your imagination be your guide.

This is a free event and basic supplies will be provided. You are welcome to bring your own materials as well.

"Mapmaking fulfills one of our most ancient and deep-seated desires: understanding the world around us and our place in it. But maps need not just show continents and oceans: there are maps to heaven and hell; to happiness and despair; maps of moods, matrimony, and mythological places....Artists' maps show another kind of uncharted realm: the imagination.

What all these maps have in common is their creators' willingness to venture beyond the boundaries of geography or convention."
