Public Installation: Drawing Room @ UFORGE Gallery | Boston | Massachusetts | United States

The Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts and UFORGE Gallery present “Drawing Room,” a participatory arts event.

The community is invited to be a part of a living, evolving artwork in one of Jamaica Plain’s foremost art galleries. For three days (Thursday 10/30 – Saturday 11/1), the walls and floor of UFORGE Gallery will be covered in paper. Children, teens, adults, and elders are encouraged to use line, form, color, and imagination to transform the gallery into a room-sized drawing. Participation is free and open to all, and art supplies will be provided.

Members of the general public will stop by to add their marks. Children from Mission Hill School, seniors from Rogerson House, students from the Eliot School, and members of UFORGE Gallery will help enliven the space.

A reception will be held on Sunday, November 2, during which this large collaborative drawing will be cut up into smaller pieces and transformed into an art exhibition. The pieces will be sold as individual works of art at a pay-what-you-wish rate, with proceeds going back to the gallery and the Eliot School. The reception will also feature live music performed by the Old Time Rips and refreshments provided by local vendors.

The Eliot School inspires lifelong learning in craftsmanship and creativity for all. UFORGE Gallery fosters creativity by cultivating a collaborative and inclusive arts community through membership, exhibitions, and events.

Participation: Thursday, Oct 30–Saturday, Nov 1, 12–6pm

Reception: Sunday, Nov 2, 3–5pm

Location: UFORGE Gallery, 767 Centre Street, Jamaica Plain
