Self-Portrait Collages: A Bloomington Reads Program
Peoria mixed-media artist Trish Williams will share and discuss her work before leading attendees through a workshop where each will create a self-portrait collage using various textiles. From Williams’ website: “I bring together the rhythm of hand dyed, painted and commercially made fabrics with the syncopated lines of my quilting to tell stories about the African Diaspora and my community.” All supplies will be provided. Registration is required and limited to 15 adults, age 17+. Registration opens at 10 am on Tuesday, March 5. Register by calling 309.261.3935. Neither in-person nor online registration will be offered.
This program is part of the 2019 Bloomington Reads programming series. Heads of the Colored People by Nafissa Thompson-Spires is the 2019 Bloomington Reads spotlight title. Area residents are encouraged to read this title, discuss it with their peers, and attend library programs which focus on themes found in the book. Thompson-Spires will visit the Library and give an author presentation on April 9.
