What is Silks in the Sun?
This interactive performance art piece will be completely free to participate. People can be a spectator or join right in. Experience the ethereal wonders of moving silk in a natural open air setting. Artist, Karen Black will show you how to play with silk veils and fans with a few quick and easy techniques.
Then everyone will be free to explore and transform themselves through the power of sunlight through silk. While participants are playing Karen will be photographing their silhouettes through the silks. Participants will be completely anonymous.
Silks will be provided. It is requested that you wear no sharp jewelry or Velcro that can damage the delicate silks.
No outside photography will be allowed during sessions so not to interfere with the spontaneous development of this artistic creation.
My hope is that this art experience can be repeated in different locations to create a future multimedia presentation. Please let me know if you or your organization would like to host a 'Silks in the Sun' (Won't cost you anything but a little bit of fun in the sun and use of restroom facilities.) If you would like to have this experience. Contact with and we can schedule Date and time and a rain date.
