Sights + Sounds of Allston-Brighton: Community Workshop
Thursday, November 18, 2021, 5:00pm to 6:00pm
Harvard Ed Portal (outdoors), 224 Western Ave., Allston
Join artists Allison Tanenhaus and Maria Finkelmeier at the Harvard Ed Portal to participate in the public art project FREQUENCIES: Allston-Brighton!
On view at the Harvard Ed Portal from November 4 – February 28, FREQUENCIES is an audio/visual mural that features crowdsourced material from around Allston-Brighton. At this workshop, you’ll learn how to capture the beauty that is all around you—like the sounds of your best friend laughing or images of the 501 bus rolling down Washington St.
Workshop participants will meet outside the Harvard Ed Portal at 5:00pm to experience the artwork and hear about the project directly from the artists. Then, we'll move to the nearby area to find inspiration and capture your own Sights & Sounds!
Bring any device you own that can record video, audio, or images (like a smartphone, tablet, or digital camera). If you don’t have access to a device, don’t worry! We’ll have a few on hand for you to borrow.
After you’ve captured your media, you’ll have the chance to contribute the content to the artists as source material for FREQUENCIES. If you choose to contribute, the artists will give credit to everyone that participates (yes, your name will be projected in lights!).
