Alchemy Turns Thought Into Art

April 15, 2017 - 10:00am to 2:00pm
Join renowned artist Dwight Wigley and create your own piece of a community art project! As part of the annual Merced Art Hop, everyone is invited to paint tiles that will be placed into a structure designed by Wigley to create a collective work of art. Each contributor will be photographed with his or her artwork for a book to be produced after the event, and when the art piece is dismantled, each tile artist will get his or her tile back, along with a copy of the book! The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, April 15, at the Merced Multicultural Arts Center, 645 W. Main St., Merced. It is free and open to everyone in the community. The event is sponsored by UC Merced, the Global Arts Studies Program, the School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts, the Merced Multicultural Arts Center and, generously, Wigley and his wife, Joanne.
