It’s a great honor for Camilla to be selected for the Minneapolis Institute of Arts Artist Residency along with fellow Helmetgirls: Origins writer Joshua Dysart! Both Camilla and Joshua are being invited to be a part of the institute’s Edo Pop! series that follows how 17th-century Japanese prints have influenced artists today.
Things kick off tonight with “Teen Studio: Samurais to Helmetgirls” – a three hour live art demonstration and in-studio talk by Camilla and Joshua.
This Sunday, November 13th is FREE Family Day at the museum from 11:0am to 5:00pm! So tell your friends in the Minneapolis area to come out and see the different works on display. It’s a great opportunity to be inspired by some impressive, historical prints.
For any writers interested in the process, on Wednesday, November 16th from 3:00pm to 4:00pm, Joshua will be speaking about his award-winning graphic novel series Unknown Soldier.
To close the residency, both Camilla and Joshua will be speaking with Katherine Milton, Ph.D, about a variety of subjects in a lecture titled “CrossTalk: Manga, Anime, Comics, and Pop! Contemporary Practices Rooted in Japanese Tradition.” Tickets are available online starting at just $10, or can be purchased at the door, or by calling (612) 870-6323.
