      EVENT DETAILS
      Concourse C - Community Assemblage Workshops

      Join artist Cathy Allen for an assemblage art-making workshop and help create the shelter installation for Yucca Valley Visual and Performing Arts Center's exhibition Concourse C. Collected junk / workshop materials will be provided by the Mojave Desert Land Trust. Participants are welcome to bring their own found object materials as additions to the shelter. Assemblage is art that is made by assembling disparate elements – often everyday objects – scavenged by the artist or bought specially.  About the Exhibition: Concourse C In the spirit of community, assemblage art, and curio, Yucca Valley Visual and Performing Arts Center presents Concourse C. Inspired by the book Station Eleven and its post pandemic genesis of an airport community, the exhibition explores the repurposing of discarded waste into potential functioning shelter and as an archive of human enterprise. Cathy Allen's assemblage structure will be on view alongside selections from Karyl Newman's Waste Wunderkammer collection of objects found lingering in the desert. The collection parallel's Station Eleven's Museum of Civilization, a display of extinct technology housed in the gift shop of Concourse C.  Opening reception: September 7, 2019 6-9pm Exhibition On View: September 7 - October 20, 2019 (Gallery hours: Thursdays through Sundays, 1-6pm) Assemblage Workshops:  Tuesday, September 3, 2019 - 10am to 4pm  Saturdays, September 14 and 21, 2019 – 2pm to 5pm   Free to the public.
