(Or: Build Your Own Blizzard)

Since nature has not seen (yet) to give us one, the folks at Round Robin Collective invite us north Brooklynites to make our own within the cozy confines at Arts@Renaissance! Here’s the 411 per the Facebook page for this event:

Bring on the storm, bring on the snow! Let’s make what may be the only snow storm this 2012 winter. We are building a PAPER SNOWFLAKE BLIZZARD.

Caroline Burghardt, Shannon Finnegan, Lisa Leighton, Deirdre McConnell, Breanne Trammell, & James Weingrod are building a collaborative interactive installation of not-just-paper snowflakes & we want you to participate. Flakes have been forming since the “Hospitality” exhibition started a few weeks ago but the storm will really get going on our installation workshop day, Sunday, February 19.

We invite you to bring flakes from home or come make some with us. The flakes can be any color (preferably white, blue, grey, pastels but Cheeto orange is great too!), any kind of paper (regular, metallic, clear, tissue, etc.), or any material you fancy (paper, wire, fabric, yarn, etc.). We have materials but feel free to bring your own (especially scissors – we have a limited number).

We will have coffee, donuts, and other treats to warm you up and keep you going.

This is an ALL AGES event. Kids welcome (with parental supervision).

If you can’t make it Sunday you can bring or make them any time you visit the show. By the end of the exhibition we will have the wildest, most colorful storm this winter!

To RSVP for this event kindly send an email to Chris at arts(at)stnicksalliance(dot)org. Check it out!
