Talking About Drawing

Tomorrow, Wednesday, May 30th, 2007, from 6-9 pm, DC's Civilian Art Projects will host "Draw In."

This open to all community drawing event is organized by artist and musician Reuben Breslar. About the project, Breslar says:

"The Draw-In project, as I have come to name it, is a community awareness happening composed loosely around art environments and the act of drawing.

It is in continuum and will occur as often as possible. It combines issues of personal sincerity and interaction in the public scenario. The idea has evolved from the crossroads of two major influences in my life. The first being the joy of drawing amongst friends over drinks, and the conversation and serendipitous moments that come about from social engagement based around drawing. The second stems from issues of cultural awareness and identity- subjects that need to be addressed in the artworld as well as the public sphere amongst the contemporary artmarket and other pressing insularly 'conversations.'

My end goal is to have the event serve as a reminder as to the potential of art and the need for wholesome human relations."
When: Wednesday, May 30th, 2007, 6-9 pm

Where: Civilian Art Projects (406 7th St., NW, Floor 3 WDC 20004, 202-347-0022)

The event itself is an after work affair, an evening of drawing, drinking, eating and having a good time. Some drinks will be provided, all you have to do is show up. Please come with your materials of choice.
