Open Field Drawing Club packed up its pencils and paper and ventured across the river to St.Paul’s annual Grand Old Day this past Sunday. Local artists joined with festival patrons to create collaborative works throughout the day. It was a wonderful day of conversation, creativity, parades, street candy and some great questions about Open Field and mnartists.org. Artist Andy Sturdevant created several “activity sheet” drawings, which may inspire a future Drawing Club themed day.
There was also a modified “Wheel of Fun” which invited people to spin the wheel which randomly selected an work from the Walker’s Collection. The contestant was then asked a questions about the artwork and received a prize for either correctly answering the question or learning something new about contemporary art. The activity created interesting discussions and about the work, numerous learning moments and thoughtful questions and a steady line throughout the day. Props to ECP’s Christina Alderman for coming up with this great activity.
