July 29 – 31, 2016

The Art Gym at Marylhurst University

The Art Gym presents its first summer outdoor project, I’m Going to Live the Life I Sing About in My Song, by Jen Delos Reyes, from July 29 to 31, 2016. Inspired by her newly released book, I’m Going to Live the Life I Sing About in My Song: How Artists Make and Live Lives of Meaning, the summer project will take place in a small geodesic dome on the Marylhurst University campus. Each day, Delos Reyes will serve cocktails in the dome during happy hour and will be on hand to discuss the ideas in the book. Invited artists will also host events and talks each day, and on Sunday, July 31, Delos Reyes will give a reading from her book.
