12.3.12 // Teens Celebrate Art with GeekGirlCon and SAM
Teens 13 to 18: Join GeekGirlCon and the Seattle Art Museum for an evening celebrating the accomplishments of women in the arts this Friday, December 7 from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m.
Hear live music, watch dance and spoken word performances, play instruments, learn and perform choreography, and create your own works of art at workshops inspired by the new exhibitions Elles: Women Artists from the Centre Pompidou, Paris and Elles: SAM—Singular Works by Seminal Women Artists. Free admission for teens 13-18 (and accompanying adults).
Elles: Pompidou features works of art created by over 75 women artists between 1907 and 2007.
Elles: SAM features works by an additional 30 female artists, including special loans and works from SAM’s permanent collections.
There will be something for visitors of every age at this community celebration! Stop by the GeekGirlCon booth in the South Hall to play a round of “Ten Things I Know About You,” a game about famous female geeks and geekery. Spin the wheel for a topic and then name everything you can think of about it in the next 30 seconds. Surprise yourself with how much you know and maybe even win a prize!
