ADAMS SQUARE MINI PARK GAS STATION – ART INSTALLATION BY DIANE WILLIAMS

February 17 – March 13, 2020

Adams Square Mini Park Gas Station – 1020 E. Palmer Ave. Glendale, CA 91204

"We Can" is a collaborative project with artist, Diane Williams, and the Los Feliz Charter School for the Arts (LFCSA) students. The work in "We Can" was the result of a 3-month social practice project with 5-12 year old students at Los Feliz Charter School for the Arts (LFCSA). This project emphasized the importance of shared art making and active contribution. The pieces are several communal weavings and a life size abstract sculpture made out of recycled and nontraditional materials such as fabrics, shredded paintings, wire, yarn, and other discarded items.

The parents of the students at LFCSA donated these materials. The project took form in several stages, implementing various artistic and experimental methods. TK through 3rd graders worked on large scale communal paintings that were later shredded to use for weaving and sculpture. 4th through 6th graders helped form, produce and build the sculpture and weavings to create an imagined environment. "We Can" was an exercise to investigate the role of materiality in art that attempts to expand the notions of time, space, process, and participation.
