Artwalk attendees can participate in an interactive art project Oct. 7 at the Lewis-Clark State College Center for Arts & History.



An open mic reading event is set for 6-8 p.m. as part of Boise State University art professor Kate Walker’s “Finding a Way,” part of the “Over the Line: A Regional Faculty Art Exhibition,” exhibit on display at the Center.

Walker’s project includes a reading room and an online archive, at m.mixcloud.com/FindingaWay, to which the public can submit reading selections.



“We live in fraught times, facing overwhelming challenges and global crises such as climate, war, continuing pandemics and increasing social and political divisiveness,” Walker said about the project, in a Center news release. “This space provides a reading room of books and a comfortable place to sit. Viewers can contribute to an archive of recorded readings from the provided books, or from a text of their own personal choosing. This participatory project aims to create a shared resource of books, an online archive of readings, and a space for reflection and shared imaginations.”

Anyone interested in reading at the open mic event should RSVP by noon Friday (Oct. 7) by emailing cah@lcsc.edu with “Finding a Way” in the subject line. The email should include the reader’s full name, town of residence, phone number and proposed reading selection.
