TETRAPAKMAN sets up for an open and free workshop in Patterson Park
Neighbors were encouraged to casually drop by and put together a few pieces towards the final.
We also hosted a few workshops at HOME. We needed all the hands we could get!
WEAVE! NO SLEEPING! TETRAPAKMAN works late into the night. Can you guess how many pieces were joined to make the final piece?
Tetrapakman and HOME Director, Michael Owen live stream the process.
Can you find TETRAPAKMAN in this photo? Highlandtown Elementary's "Green Team" spent many sessions learning, playing and practicing. Students were able to Skype with TETRAPAKMAN, when not in town, to learn more about his processes and other projects on display outside of Baltimore. Thank you Allana Rivera for helping us coordinate with the wonderful students! So many more bridges were made between the residency program and these students, just by bringing in a Spanish speaking artist. They all really loved TETRAPAKMAN's energy and though they were pushed to think abstractly, were engaged throughout the process.

some of the neighborhood context around "Community Weave"
A lot of physical labor went into the creation as well as the installation of "Community Weave", now hanging along Eastern Ave, on The Southeast CDC.
Thank you to Promega Corporation for the materials, SECDC and Enoch Pratt for the wall space and the "Green Team" and all our neighbors for the helping hands!
A huge thank you to TETRAPAKMAN, for bringing your important message to us in the form of social sculpture. Your work has already changed mindsets and brought positive action within our community. We'd love to have you back soon!
