Drawing Heat, An Artist-Led Walk with Melting Metropolis
Join a guided art “walkshop” around New York with Melting Metropolis, an international research project looking at the history of heat in the city. Led by artist Bryony Ella and urban environmental historian Dr Kara Schlichting, Drawing Heat will be a playful, embodied mark-making experience that explores our sensory experience of summer in the city.
Discover how, why, when and where heat islands arise and create unique perspectives of the city through experimental drawing and creative writing. All materials provided and no art background necessary!
This is an outdoor activity suitable for adults who are comfortable walking and standing for up to 2 hours. The majority of the walkshop will be spent under shade. Places are limited to 20 people.
Meet in the foyer of Queens Public Library at Long Island City, 37-44 21st St, Long Island City, NY 11101.
