Plaster-Cast Your Torso This Weekend

comment

Bike, hike or car pool to the multimedia art show titled The Embodiment Project. Organizers of the event are part of an intergenerational women's art collective working to help women discover ways to improve their self-esteem using art. The art showcase was produced by local women who, in an effort to express themselves through art, have plastered their own torsos and decorated the 3-dimensional pieces. Women of all shapes and sizes created artistic representations of their bodies in the hopes of opening dialogue about body image.

The weekend of artistic events begins Sat., July 26 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and then continues with a series of workshops held between 10:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Sun., July 27 including an opportunity for another casting party for those interested. Performances throughout the weekend include the Bois of Boise, DeLush, Pat Folkner, Boise Hoopla and the African Drum and Dance Ensemble. Support the cause by donating between $7 and $15 and all proceeds go toward a grant process to assist women's art projects. For more information, visit www.myspace.com/theembodimentproject. Location: 3801 Tamarack Dr., in northwest Boise between Catalpa and Taft streets.
