Saturday, February 21 from 11AM–3:30PM
MAD: Open Studio Fiber Arts Studio.
Guest Artist-in-residence: Suzanne Tick Studio, 11AM–1PM
Are you wondering what to do with all your dry cleaning refuse? Bring them to the MAD Studios so artist/designer Suzanne Tick can weave them into art structures. In Tick’s current project Refuse DC, she explores the everyday debris we live with from dry cleaners. As an experiment, Tick asked her neighborhood dry cleaners to keep any debris brought back from their customers. As plastic, wire, paper and cardboard tubes started accumulating; it became clear what Tick needed to do…create woven structures, constructive and beautiful.
