Additional information

Calling all Cambridge residents! Join a community art project designed by the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. We will create three fabric structures designed to welcome people to campus and engage all in the spirit of discovery and the joy of learning. We'll be combining materials like puff paint, vinyl transfers for word art, light-sensitive material to create a masterpiece in three parts that represents our unique community. 

No special skills are needed—just the willingness to try something new. All materials are provided. You will do some planning and thinking around a prompt and spend the majority of the time making your piece. 

Artist Xinan Ran will assemble the pieces into the form of traditional Chinese chuangs—cylindrical textiles or statues covered in written prayers to keep Buddhist teachings active when no one is present to say them. The tree chuangs will be on view in front of the Harvard Museum of Natural History from September through October.

Please register here by July 14 to be contacted about the July 19 workshop. Or contact Abbie Sandoval-Focil with questions at sandovalfocil@hmsc.harvard.edu.
