December 6
Make Your Mark
Jepson Center

This program includes art-making activities for families and a demonstration by longtime I Have Marks to Make artist and teacher Kenneth Martin. The Family Day will also include a 3pm family-oriented performance by Jacksonville artist Liz Gibson. Gibson calls her work “deformance art.” Born with seven fingers total the artist uses characters that she has developed to teach tolerance and diversity. Her performance will consist of storytelling- (including the story of how a child born with seven fingers learns to tie her shoes), singing- (songs titled “Where Do All the Fingers Go?” and “Sing Along Song”), and various visual mediums to express ideas of deformity, adversity and empowerment- (cutting apart paper hands and then lacing them back together, and making my “marks” via hand prints & tracings to give to the audience).
