to Mar 23

The GREEN SPACE Ship

Dear Humans,
We, members of the Green Space ship, are a collective of inter-galactic plants traveling through time and space to Modern Art for our first ever earth-based arts residency at the Museum of the Living Worker. With the help of human friends Libby Modern, Mary Schroeder and Jenny Schulder, we will be creating a natural world to help you humans tap into the subtle healing vibrations of our life. We feel you need it!

During the week, you’ll be able to drop in to Dance with Plants ™*, Lounge and drink Plant Chai, Draw with Plants ™, Write with Plants™ Commune with Plants, and more…..stay tuned for a full catalog.

We help you by chilling you the f&*% out (in this case), and you help us, by spreading the great word of plants all around world: that we are not the mute immobile furniture of your world, but rather protagonists in our own dramas, highly skilled in the ways of contending in nature. Capish?

With Love,
Nephrolepis Exaltata, Dracaena, and Spathiphyllum (Curators at Large)

*We are attempting to Trade Mark a few of our great intellectual properties. We tried to patent our DNA, but Monsanto already laid claim over these and we are currently tied up in Litigation.

EVENT SCHEDULE:

Wednesday: 7:00 - 8:30 Think with Plants
People often ask me, do plants believe in God? Do plants pray? Do plants go to heaven when they die? "Of course not!," I say. "There from outer space!" But the guidance that plants provide is profound, nonetheless. They impart lessons that are neither religious, nor secular, nor spiritual. Join John Modern for an immersive evening of sound ideas about how plants think about us and how we might better think about them.

Thursday: 6-8:00pm Communicate with Plants
with Jen Frey
Jen Frey is a Healer, Mentor, Earth Advocate and Voice of the Plants. She is the Founder of Heart Springs Sanctuary, where she helps people deepen their connection with Nature through Plant communicationHumans have an innate ability to communicate with Plants, though we have mostly forgotten how to do this. In this fun and informative workshop, we will begin to remember how to communicate with the Plants as we once did intuitively. Plant communication enhances our well being, offers solutions, guides us on our soul’s path and helps us deepen our relationship with nature.

Friday: 5:00 - 7:00pm Happy Plant Hour
with special guest Dr. Nicole Heller, Curator of the Anthropocene for Carnegie Museum of Natural History. Ask her questions!

TINY MODERN CONCERT: Sandcatchers

7:00 PM19:00

TINY MODERN CONCERT: Sandcatchers

Sandcatchers is a new band consisting of oud, lap steel, bass and drums, with special guest Erik Friedlander on cello. The ensemble (Yoshie Fruchter on oud, Myk Freedman on lapsteel, Michael Bates on bass, and Shai Wetzer on drums/percussion) began as a weekly gig in a Brooklyn restaurant and quickly became a focused musical and compositional exploration. The goal with this band has been to establish a sonic combination that is not only pleasing to the ear, but also challenges our notions of how we view musical context. The oud has a deep history in the Middle East and strands of tradition spanning centuries, while the lap steel is a much younger entity who’s sound is still being established. Together, the instruments have contrasting timbres but are also unique tools for composition creating a sound that is both new and beautiful.

This workshop is for anyone who:

- Wants to develop their canvassing skills and learn from others

We will be holding two sessions, one on Saturday and one on Sunday morning. Join us!

Join us for the second installation of Modern Art's Museum of the Living Worker: a real-life window into the creative process, inviting you to witness and participate in a unique project. This one features writer and professor Erik Anderson in the LANCASTER OFFICE OF PUBLIC NARRATIVE (LOPN).

Ever spotted a celebrity at Market? How about a lemur? Ever been snubbed by the Barnstormers mascot? Was Charlie Demuth your grandfather’s neighbor’s best friend? At night, do you dream of stealing buggies? Does the tiger salamander at the North Museum look at you funny? Did your onion rings cause Dipco to catch fire?

What’s your best Lancaster story? What’s your worst?

The Lancaster Office of Personal Narrative (LOPN) invites you to schedule a 20-minute consultation with one of our Professional Narrativizers who will shape your story into a highly memorable, easily digestible version of 100 words or less.

Not only will all sessions be free of charge, but participants will also receive a (very, very) small payment. Finalized stories will be delivered via USPS on official LOPN letterhead.

Sessions will take place from Sunday, July 22 through Thursday, July 26 at Modern Art, 529 West Chestnut St. Sunday hours are 11am to 5pm; Monday through Thursday hours are 4pm to 7pm.

SIGN UP for a session here: https://doodle.com/poll/ircui3d9k6eky2ae (or drop in during open hours for a chance to participate.)

Museum of the Living Worker
Jul
4
to Jul 8

Museum of the Living Worker

Modern Art values the creative practice and sees it as an essential part of a vibrant and living city. To this end, we are excited to launch our new project: THE MUSEUM OF THE LIVING WORKER, with our inaugural Living Worker in Residence, actor, writer and comedian, SHAWNA STOLTZFOOS. Shawna will be on display from July 4-8, 2018.

Museum of the Living Worker is a unique program for workers who are seeking some much deserved time and space away from their daily habits to pursue a creative project, AND to be part of an innovative effort to highlight the power of artistic work in Lancaster.

Workers in Residence will have the opportunity to use Modern Art's room, "the Modern Experiment," as their studio. During this time the Living Worker will pursue their proposed creative project for one, two or three week stints.

Projects can be almost anything: a piece of writing, painting, sewing, musical composition, dancing, hula hooping—almost anything. Modern Art will work with Living Worker residents in order to personalize the space to coordinate with their project, and will support them throughout the residency. 

In keeping with our mission of encouraging the curious and engaging our community, a key component of the residency is to allow visitors and passers by a window into the creative process. Living Workers in Residence are encouraged to do their work in public view, and to have open studio hours throughout during which the visitors can walk in and observe. Each project will possess an element of creative public interaction— inviting folks in to the space to chat, to gather information, or to collaborate on the project 

Workers in Residence will have full use of Modern Experiment Room (approximately 20' x 20'). Prior to the residency, Modern Art will meet with workers in order to understand the proposed project and the resident's creative needs. Supplied will be a desk, chairs, table or easel, cozy chair, lamp, rug, curated book shelf and decor, and a personalized signage on our outdoor wall. Throughout the residency Modern Art will provide various forms of interesting creative encouragement to support the resident worker. This may include daily treats, prompts, challenges, an inspiration cubby with personalized surprises. Workers' projects will be marketed through Modern Art's website, email list and social media.

Artist Talk- Dawn Weleski

Dawn Weleski of Conflict Kitchen will talking about Conflict Kitchen and the exploratory work that she and her creative partner, Jon Rubin are doing as recipients of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts Curatorial Fellowship.

Conflict Kitchen (www.ConflictKitchen.org) is an art and education project that serves cuisine from countries with which the United States is in conflict. Each Conflict Kitchen iteration is augmented by
events, performances, publications, and discussions that seek to expand the engagement the public has with the culture, politics, and issues at stake within the focus region. While a restaurant from 2010 – 2017, Conflict Kitchen rotated identities in relation to current geopolitical events.
Each iteration introduced customers to the food, culture, and politics of the country of focus. All experiences and opinions that are presented in publications and programming were informed by the personal perspectives and history of the country’s citizens. These diverse perspectives reflect a nuanced range of thought and served to instigate questioning, conversation, and debate with our customers and the public at large.

Come and learn more. Bring a friend!
