Borderless Arts TN is preparing for a very special project that will begin this Saturday (March 18) at 10am at Middle Tennessee State University.
This project will be to recognize the 250th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. Participants will create a collage under the artistic direction of Lauren Emery Rudd. The collage will be a replica of the old Boston harbor with materials that are stained with tea and coffee.
The project will be done in the collage style of artist William N Rollins. Mr. Rollins was a Nashville artist who moved to Boston where he did his art until his death. However, he left a strong arts legacy for the arts community in middle TN through a grant that is run through the Community Foundation of Middle TN. Therefore, this project is also in his honor.
In addition the the collage, participants will continue this project with information on the fascinating history of china painting with Angie Matte and will make both a plate and a mug. We will also end those sessions with our own tea party.
The collage art will be donated with Public Consulting Group (PCG) in Boston. PCG has been a strong corporate supporter of Borderless Arts for many years. Their headquarters are in Boston and they are also just completing their own anniversary.
