NEWS FROM ARTSEED’S LABYRINTH STUDIOS

 
View photos from recent events at ArtSeed’s Labyrinth Studios, most recently the President’s Day drop-in art-making and Mailing Home Project.

ArtSeed’s 2017 theme is Marching Home: Grasping Valor, Preserving  Freedom and Protecting the Earth on the Way to Peace. A core stimulus for making works this year is the Mailing Home Project. Our aim is to illuminate the interconnectedness of social and environmental issues, revealing the urgency of how human power relations affect the health of the planet and all the people who live on it.
