Seasonal Special Happenings

Game On

When: Sat., July 18 2015

Exquisite Corpse is a term for a collaborative art game created by the Surrealists of the 20th century. A paper is folded into thirds and three artists take turns drawing on one section, after each section is completed, it is covered almost completely. The next artist can only see a few lines from the upper image. They use these hints to guide their creative response. The final result is revealed upon completion to the surprise of everyone involved. The Cleveland Print Room’s fundraiser is named after and inspired by this old Surrealist game. From 6 to 9 p.m. this Saturday, July 18, artists will be drawing Exquisite Corpses live in the Cleveland Print Room. All works created during the event will be sold for $75; and larger murals will be available in a silent auction starting at $100. The event will also feature a special section for children and families to sit, create and display their own Exquisite Corpse drawings. DJ Sputnik will be providing the soundtrack for the evening. Admission is $5 (children 12 and under are free). Works will remain on view through Monday, July 20. Stop by Saturday to help support the Cleveland Print Room. All proceeds support the future growth and programming of the organization. (Usmani)
