Zz School is honored to have Breanne Trammell as the inaugural artist invited to take part in its “Printmaking in the Expanded Field” program. This program aims to bring two artists per year from outside the region to Kansas City to execute a print-based and socially conscious artwork specific to our city. Events generated through this project will always aim to activate the viewer and encourage social interaction. This event will take place at Plug Projects, 1613 Genessee St. Kansas City, MO 64102 at 1PM.
Upon her arrival yesterday, Breanne has been working to create a show-and-tell workshop and print happening titled “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love” based on objects and ephemera from the LaBudde Special Collections at UMKC. Breanne is embracing her role as a “tourist” and “amateur excavator” as she combs through the archives and plans to select pieces to share that “will highlight significant moments in Kansas City history and honor the heritage of KC as well as its people.” Attendees are encouraged to bring their voice as well as objects or ephemera from their own histories and collections to share.
Here a few pictures from yesterday. We had a great time AND convinced Stuart Hinds, Director of Special Collections to make a guest appearance at the event this Saturday! This event will include “take-away” prints, cool stories, and more guest speakers. Follow the event on Facebook and I hope to see you at there!
