Words Matter
May 20 Meet the Artsist, 5-9

There are an estimated 250,000 words in the English language, new words are added each year and others are deemed obsolete. We use our words to name things, to expand understanding and ultimately to communicate ideas, thoughts or emotions. With nearly a quarter million words to choose from, we decided to challenge our participants to look past the written form and explore the aesthetic of a word. We explored fonts, calligraphy, and we even played with an antique letterpress. Realizing the written word is changing we challenged assumptions about where and how words could be found and or recognized. Taking our cue from well known artists like Mel Bochner and Jenny Hozer we put new twist on an old formula.
