Bring Your Own Beamer Projection Party & Courtyard Chalk-Up!

Bring Your Own Beamer Projection Party & Courtyard Chalk-Up!  | Events Calendar
Inspired by Trenton Doyle Hancock: Skin and Bones, 20 Years of Drawing and building upon the Comic-Con platform for creating awareness of comic culture, Skin and Bones Comic Con is a weekend-long festival of happenings, talks and workshops that celebrate the dynamic contribution of comics to contemporary black art and culture. Dust off your old slide, video or film projector and join us in celebrating the launch of Skin and Bones Comic Con with a Bring Your Own Beamer Projection Party and Courtyard Chalk-Up! And fear not, if you don’t have a projector, come equipped with a smartphone, magnifying glass and shoebox, and we can teach you how to make your own. This happening invites visitors and comics professionals alike to use the Museum’s walls as a blank canvas for producing a collaborative, digital collage that illuminates and discusses black comic characters, from cult classics to original character designs. There will also be a sidewalk chalking activity led by graffiti artist and Museum educator Carlos Jesus Martinez Dominguez that will use the projectors to trace and forge connections between these characters on an overlapping spectrum of scales. Carlos Jesus Martinez Dominguez is an artist who draws inspiration from the cultures and related histories of Hip Hop, NYC and the Caribbean. He started tagging in 1987 and has exhibited his work nationally and internationally. Carlos currently lives and works in Washington Heights and is an educator at The Romare Bearden Foundation, El Museo del Barrio, the Wallach Gallery at Columbia University and The Studio Museum in Harlem.

Skin and Bones Comic Con is free with Museum admission Thursday, June 18–Saturday, June 20, which is a suggested donation of $7 for adults and $3 for students and seniors. - See more at: http://www.studiomuseum.org/event-calendar/event/bring-your-own-beamer-projection-party-courtyard-chalk-2015-06-18#sthash.IwXONBJO.dpuf
