Screen printing and screaming at the air-conditioned library (July 10, 29 and other dates)

July 7, 2008

The screen printing and screaming will not be simultaneous — unless they’re doing a whole different technique from any I’m familiar with!  (To see for yourself how painless the process is, check this link.)  The St. Louis Public Library’s screen-printing workshops are in coordination with the Contemporary Art Museum, guaranteeing that they’ll exceed the ordinary.  The first one is Thursday (July 10) at the Baden branch from 4 to 5 p.m; the second is at the Carondelet branch on July 29 from 4 to 5 p.m.  The tagline is Metamorphosis Meets Fashion, which didn’t lure me much, until I read the details on the library’s events page (click this link, then click on the dates, 10th or 29th, on the calendar at top left).  The Metamorphosis part comes from the groups of teens who’ve helped the art museum come up with images for the screen printing; the Fashion part comes from the instructors’ assisting participants in selecting the garments that best suit them and individually guiding them through the screen-printing process using professional products.

So, you ask, what about the screaming?  Well, the intrepid performer Babaloo is again doing his summertime library tour, with dates throughout the St. Louis region (most in the St. Louis County Library system) and across Illinois too (check out his city park show, those of you in O’Fallon, Illinois!).  His homepage has a schedule for July, along with numbers to call for more info on each of the venues.
