Upcoming event :

WARM Pop UP Show Closing event- Fresh ART and Re-imagining

Thursday, May 26th 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Lowertown Lofts, 255 Kellogg Blvd East Third Floor, St Paul, MN, USA

One last chance to see the art of new members at the Lowertown Lofts!  A casual event to hear about their art AND share your freshest art- unfinished art is great too!  No judgements just sharing where you are at and what you are doing.  We also would like to take this time to hear your ideas about programming and exhibits and the direction you would like to see our feminist art organization take.

Regular Warm Events:

WARM has three series of events: WARM Conversations, WARM Forums and Fresh Art.  Please scroll down to see each event type listed below.  If you would like to view all the events in order of date visit the WARM Calendar of Events.

WARM Conversations

Join us for monthly visits to area art shows,  arts organizations and studios. Generally we tour a show or facility and then discuss the art and socialize. These events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.  For information about WARM Conversations, email info@thewarm.org.  For 2016 we are only scheduling WARM Conversations on request as WARM focuses on our “Re-imaginng”. If you have an idea for a WARM Conversation please contact layl@claysquared.com

Fresh ART

Past events:  Social Practice Art

Facilitators:

Susan Armington’s art and community work deal with connecting across difference, and the role of art-making and sharing stories in bringing deeper understanding of ourselves and of others.  She creates large-scale maps with community stories in them, and directs the Talking Suitcases™ project in which participants create and share their own story objects and Talking Suitcases about their lives.  Read More:  http://www.susanarmington.com.

Barbara Rogers Bridges seeks to empower all people to embrace the creative process. She makes art from rescued power objects and artist fabricated components in a variety of media. She organizes the object to create meaning and to provoke discussion on a wide variety of social topics. These include projects focused on gluten intolerance and water quality. Barbara is a 40 year teaching veteran. Read More: http://bridgescreate.com/
