Experience this collaborative, participatory art happening!
Stop by for an hour or join us for the day, everyone is welcome at this come-one, come-all art party!
With a simple structure and very few rules, TASK parties create almost unlimited opportunities for people to interact with one another, art
materials, and their environment.
Started by conceptual artist Oliver Herring, a TASK Party is a community-building creative event. All participants agree to two rules:
1. write down a task on a piece of paper and add it to the box.
2. draw a task from the box and complete it. It is anonymous and all tasks are open to interpretation.
Supplies (markers, cardboard, pencils, paper, tape rubber bands, etc.) will be provided, but participants can use anything they want to complete the task. Tasks can be action-oriented and need no supplies. Once a task is complete, the paper will be posted to create a collage of completed tasks.
A task party is a way to build creative capacity for people of all ages. It is a fun and accessible way to get them interacting and working through the creative process. At the end, it is an awesome feeling (especially for those who feel they are ”not good at” art) to experience being part of a large-scale art project.
Participants can put anything in the box, which is what makes a task party so much fun. Tasks can be more straightforward, “Find five people to play your favorite childhood game with,” or totally off-the-wall, “Open an ice cream shop.”
Invite your friends!
