Art group sets up second informal conversation

Thursday, August 4, 2011

TERRE HAUTE -- Wabash Valley Outdoor Sculpture Collection -- in collaboration with Art Spaces, Inc. -- recently announced the second in a series of informal conversations titled, "Art Chatter," to take place each second Wednesday through Oct. 7, at 7th and Elm Bar and Grille.

Dates and discussion topics include:

* Aug. 10 -- What is Green Art? What is green art and eco-art and why are so many artists shifting from singular pieces of art to big problem-solving infrastructure design,

* Sept. 14 -- What is an original? What are the boundaries between an original and a copy? What are the different ways that creating "multiples" have stretched the boundaries of what is an accepted "original," and

* Oct. 12 -- How can you like art that doesn't look like something? What drives artists to create abstract works and how do you look at them?

People of all ages are invited to 7th and Elm at 5:15 p.m., to chat about art and get to know other people through lively discussion.

Two presenters will kick off each evening by presenting some images and ideas to get the conversation started.

Beverages and food will be available for purchase from the 7th and Elm menu.

Art Spaces, Inc., is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to establish a collection of public outdoor sculpture in Terre Haute and the surrounding region of the Wabash Valley.

The collection now numbers nine, and three more will be added this year.
