Community Workshop with Tyree Guyton

Join Mural Arts and artist Tyree Guyton for a facilitated dialogue about time and resilience, part of Tyree’s ongoing work in Kensington as part of the citywide Monument Lab exhibition. This event is a chance for community members to come together and listen without judgement, and will be a safe environment for all. It will be an opportunity to get an inside look into THE TIMES, Guyton’s Monument Lab installation at A and Indiana. We’ll end with an art-making activity lead by Tyree.

This event is hosted in partnership with Impact Services, an organization deeply involved with the veteran community in Kensington, and one of our partners for the Kensington Storefront, a project of the Mural Arts Porch Light program.
