About this event

"What We Honor" by Angela Johnson & Justin Bitner

We are inviting small groups of people to create individual and meaningful cyanotypes (camera less images exposed by the sun) with us. Gather and bring small objects that helped you get through the pandemic to use to create your cyanotype. We will have leaves and flowers that may be used as well.

Angela Johnson is a Madison, Wisconsin photographer, creativity coach and educator with a creative spirit. Justin Bitner is an Artist/Craftsman residing in Madison, Wisconsin, where he attended UW Madison and earned his MFA.

Location:

South Madison near Monona Bay and the Bay Creek neighborhood.

After signing up, you will receive an email with the specific address.

Logistics and Accessibility:

We will work with you to create meaningful cyanotypes on fabric (camera-less images exposed by the sun). Bring small objects that helped you get through the pandemic to use to create your cyanotype. We will have leaves and flowers that may be used as well.

We will be outside for an hour, making cyanotypes in our yard and/or driveway with uneven ground surfaces. Dress accordingly for summer and you may want to bring a water bottle. No public restroom. Park on the street when you arrive.

Donations will be accepted as free-will. No minimum is asked.

4-5 people or one family unit per event.

Other Info:

In the event of bad weather, performance will be rescheduled.

A Home Stretch Performance

Home Stretch is a “distributed festival” of small artistic acts taking place in Madison, WI between the summer solstice (21 June) and the autumn equinox (22 September). By appointment, local artists are offering intimate performances and other arts experiences throughout the summer.

In this time of transition between COVID lockdowns and eventual reopening, Home Stretch explores how forms of performance and other kinds of aesthetic sociality can help us re-learn how to be together.

The title Home Stretch refers less to the idea of the final part of a race, since the pandemic is far from over. Rather, it’s about artists stretching their homes into public space, and the public stretching out of lockdown bit by bit. These art experiences are a chance to stretch both social and artistic muscles.

All events are free to attend, though some performers may pass a hat or request donations to specific causes. Information and registration is at homestretch.art.

Home Stretch is a project of Spatula&Barcode, a Madison-based arts collaborative devoted to conviviality, criticality and commensality. More information about Spatula&Barcode can be found at https://spatulaandbarcode.net/ and you can follow @spatcode on Instagram (if you post about Home Stretch on social media, we encourage you to use #homestretch).

Home Stretch is funded in part by grants from the University of Wisconsin Division of the Arts and the Madison Arts Commission, with additional support from the Wisconsin Arts Board.
