5 day continuous performance, artist present day/night
Woolworth Window on 11th & Commerce

Priscilla Dobler will be performing/working in her Woolworth Window tonight from 5-9pm (and she has been there all day too) for the Third Thursday Art Walk. We encourage you to stop by to visit with her, watch her work on her loom, and she will even give you a spin on it! She has been working all week, creating fresh textiles to turn  her simple stark white installation into a room of color, with her floor loom and colorful cotton threads. The woven pieces she creates during this performance will be given away to the homeless, available for sale to passersby, or left in the window for the remainder of the exhibition, through December 20. Visitors are invited to enter the window, chat with the artist, and touch the artwork.
