Observe and learn the process of gold leaf application from instructor Deon Blackwell. Blackwell will be in residence at USFCAM to fabricate components of a sculptural installation for the exhibition Extracted. The workshop will consist of a lecture/presentation by Blackwell followed by an opportunity to practice applying imitation gold leaf on a sample fragment.

USFCAM’s ongoing Museum at Work series of exhibitions and workshops turns the museum inside out, letting the public see and experience what happens behind closed doors and learn what it takes to manage the collection and install exhibitions.

Cost: Free. Space limited to 15 participants. Pre-registration required. Contact Amy Allison at (813) 974-4164 or by August 4.
