Family-friendly Film Screening and Artist’s Talk featuring Buster Keaton and Lyla Rye
Sat, Nov 30, 2013 starting at 1:00 PM
Join us for an informal artist’s talk and family-friendly film screening, featuring the two Buster Keaton shorts, One Week and The Electric House, which inspired Lyla Rye’s Erratic Room installation. Bring your own pillow (chairs available as needed); popcorn will be served (suggested donation).
Each short is around 20 minutes long. Come around 1pm to see the installation and get your seat; first screening starts at 1:30. After a short break, the second screening will start, followed by a brief artist’s talk and kid-friendly Q+A. Stay for as long as you like!
Kids welcome accompanied by caregivers; recommended age range is 5 and up. If plans change, please notify us a day in advance so that others may have the chance to attend.
TYPOLOGY / ERRATIC ROOM: In Conversation with Curator and Artist
Wed, Dec 4, 2013 starting at 7:00 PM
Curator Shani K Parsons and artist Lyla Rye discuss the process behind Erratic Room, TYPOLOGY’s inaugural exhibition. Q+A and reception to follow.
Holiday Button-Making Workshop with Lyla Rye
Sat, Dec 14, 2013 starting at 1:00 PM
In this family-friendly workshop, learn principles of collage using found imagery culled from newspapers, advertisements and magazines. Through play and experimentation, we will explore how collisions of imagery or unexpected image/text combinations create new associations and ideas. The finished small collages will then be made into unique art buttons, perfect for stocking stuffers and holiday gift-giving!
Workshop is free; suggested donation of $5 per set of 3 buttons to cover material costs and benefit project space programming. Kids welcome accompanied by caregivers; recommended age range is 5 and up.

Come as you are; dress can be casual or creative. Delicious snacks will be served; cash bar to benefit project space programming and community outreach in 2014. Featuring music performances courtesy of Small World Music Centre, another wonderful organization at Youngplace!
