A Sturgeon with A Purpose: Walk and Community Brainstorm

April 27, 2023 @ 5:00 pm 6:00 pm EDT

Meet outside in the NATURE Lab yard at 3319 6th Avenue

Join artist D Colin for a walk on the Sanctuary’s campus to help envision how her project A Sturgeon with a Purpose will enliven our growing campus Eco-Art Trail. This community written generative storytelling mural project will culminate in a block-wide series of painted panels along the Sanctuary Campus. Participants will work with D to learn about and add to the story, and imagine where the painted panels should be placed to tell the story.

D. Colin is a Haitian American multidisciplinary artist with an educational background in English & Africana Studies. She is a self-published author, a dynamic performer, a self-taught painter & maker of pretty things that make bold statements. Her mantra is Be inspired. Then inspire.
