Hi, how are you, Gonzo?

Exhibition Activation:
Life Drawing with Unit C

Activations are included with museum admission.
Admission is free of charge every Tuesday; complimentary advance tickets for Tuesday activations are encouraged.

Abraham Cruzvillegas embraces the concept of autoconstrucción—loosely defined as “self-constructing”—in a vibrant artistic practice imbued with a sense of constant becoming, a curiosity to learn and share information.

Join the local art facilitators of Unit C Studio & Gallery as they host their B.Y.O.Medium Life Drawing class at the Jones Center. Beginners and masters alike are invited to draw nude models interacting with Abraham Cruzvillegas’s sculptural installations. Although a moderator will be present, the class will be a free-form drawing experience with a series of timed poses.

Bring your own dry materials, such as pencil, charcoal, pastels, and water-soluble markers, but please no paint or other wet media. There will be limited drawing boards and easels on hand.

Open to adults and youth accompanied by an adult guardian. Workshop contains nudity.
