Living Artifact Project 2017

Wondering what a Living Artifact is?

        A Living Artifact is an object created in response to a question, prompt or person.  It can be made with a core object like a box or container.  Any and all kinds of art can be included in the creation.  It is a journey that brings the designer through layers of contemplation.

Seventeen local women artists have each created an artifact using inspiration from a prompt: one of life's big (or small) questions.  These artifacts will be traveling around the Albuquerque area throughout the month of March to invite responses from inquisitive viewers.  The Living Artifact Project is a sponsored event of Women & Creativity 2017.

Participants of the workshop will have the opportunity to choose a prompt or person to inspire their artifact.   Some materials will be provided.  Participants are invited to return with their artifact at the Living Artifact reception on Wednesday March 29 at 6pm at Tortuga Gallery.
