Everyone an Artist? Opening at Johns Hopkins tonight

"Everyone an Artist?" Reception tonight, March 26
Project: We're Not Alone
5 pm to 7:30 pm
Johns Hopkins University, Mattin Center

The reception is free and open to the public and includes:

• Make a Card, Take a Card—Hundreds of Artist Trading Cards made since fall 2008 by numerous college students are laid out on a table, the one you want ready to be exchanged for the Artist Trading Card you may make at the reception.

• Concert Draw—Student musicians provide the inspiration for you to draw in response to what you hear. Art supplies and basic instructions provided by Art on Purpose staff.

• Big Doll House—You’re never too old. Help decorate the over-sized cardboard house that travels from exhibition to exhibition, reception to reception, an invitation to collaborative, creative play.

• College Culture Vulture Competition—Which of the 13 participating colleges and universities have the most avid cultural consumers among their student body? We measure the answer to this question by counting those who take part in our activities at each reception, offering prizes to the students from the college or university that outnumber the rest.

The reception includes a demonstration of Johns Hopkins University students' drawing machines at 6:30pm.
