Identity Art Books: A Queer Jewish Interactive Arts Project

Looking at art is fun. Making it is even better. We’ll kickoff the afternoon by touring the Mizel Museum and checking out their amazing collection of Jewish art. Abigale Grace, a talented young queer Jewish artist we’re proud to call a local (Layfayette, CO), will be our guide for the second part of the event. She’ll lead a workshop teaching us how to make books that reflect different parts of our identity. Bring your imagination and enthusiasm. No artistic skill required! Feel free to bring stickers, photos, or other images you might want to use for your identity book.

Drinks and appetizers provided. At the Mizel Museum, 400 South Kearney Street in Denver, on Sunday October 21, 2012, from 2pm-6pm.

Abigale Ada Grace is an active queer, avid artist, committed teacher, loving parent, engaged community member, devoted healer, and casual Jew.  Her deepest desire is to foster greater connection, within one’s self, between individuals, and to the greater whole.

She received her BA and Masters in Teaching from The Evergreen State College, in Olympia, WA.  She holds teaching endorsements in social studies and visual arts and has experience teaching preschool age children through adults.  Abigale also has a private practice in Lafayette, CO where she offers her clients healing and integration guidance through individual sessions, group classes, open circles, and weekend workshops.

Abigale’s work is primarily art based, simply because her life is art based.  Art is her greatest healing companion and with it she enters each situation supported and curious.  She finds that when a client’s hands are busy, their mind is slightly distracted, and their creativity is engaged, they are better able to shift old patterns and to access new ideas, information, and solutions.

Even after all this time
The sun never says to the earth,
“You owe Me.”
Look what happens with
A love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky.
– Hafiz
