Vitale Buford: Embracing Imperfection Workshop

Date: 
Friday, November 8, 2019 - 6:30pm

Vitale Buford writes, “Perfection is the thief of joy. It’s the stealer of fun. And the robber of love. It tells you that nothing is ever good enough. It convinces you that if you look perfect, act perfect, and live perfect, you will be happy. But it’s all an illusion. It’s a trap that keeps us disconnected from joy, from creativity, from our potential, from relationships and love. It keeps us small, fragile and fearful. In order to break free from perfection, we must learn to face our fears.”

Writing Workshop 3: Mistaken Identities

Date: 
Wednesday, October 30, 2019 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Lexington-based writer Randi Ewing leads three independent but connected workshops that use current Museum exhibitions as writing prompts.

Art is not always what it seems, and narrators cannot always be trusted. What first looks like one thing can be revealed to be another. Using the various forgeries, restrikes and misattributions in the Mistaken Identities exhibition, Randi Ewing leads participants in an exploration of various narrators.
