The Museum Education Program LAMAGPlay will present a printmaking, bookmaking, and writing inspired by Dinaw Mengestu’s book, The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears.
In this three-station workshop, attendees will participate in a writing exercise, create the 8-fold book to incorporate their writing content from the first station, and make a Styrofoam relief print for their book cover. Participants can focus on just one station or complete the three components of this activity based on their interests or time. The themes from The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears will inform the workshop’s activities, with a focus on exploring the ideas, hopes, aspirations, barriers, and elusiveness of the “American Dream.”
Barnsdall Park is a facility of the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA).
