Outings Project

Kensington_artistrendering-full

The Galesburg Civic Art Center is partnering with artist and filmmaker Julien de Casabianca to bring museum pieces from the walls into the streets! Outings Project, quite literally, takes an image in a museum’s collection, re-prints it, and reappropriates it in the streets, giving communities an opportunity to discover, actively watch, and participate in the process. Once the project is complete, Galesburg will be included alongside world cultural centers like New York, Tokyo, Warsaw, and Ramallah.

The public is encouraged to participate in this extraordinary opportunity, elevating art into places and spaces that will be enjoyed for years to come. Julien de Casabianca will be in residence Sept 25 - Oct 1.

 

All activities are FREE and open to the public.
