Art Crush Audio Tour: Love Letters to Art by Real People (Including Teens!)

Art Crush Audio Tour: Love Letters to Art by Real People (Including Teens!)

img_0466Meet The Art Crush Audio Tour!

It is a community generated audio guide in to Moore College of Art’s faculty exhibit, 2016 Faculty Triennial. The goal of the project is illuminate a wide range of viewer responses and celebrate our personal connections to works of art.

Earlier this fall, several student groups were invited to participate in writing workshops at The Galleries at Moore.

Participants include students from the U School High School, The String Theory Charter School, Julia R. Masterman High School, Moore College of Art & Design, and members of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Temple University.

img_5320Through exercises that encouraged a wide range of unexpected responses, participants generated a personal vocabulary for the art on display. For example, draw this painting as a super hero or make up a dance move for this sculpture. The workshops culminated with participants writing and recording a personal “love letter” to a specific piece of art. The Art Crush Audio Tour is a compilation of theses individual recordings.
