from the NEEDLES & PENS press release:
“MARK WARREN JACQUES and SETH NEEFUS are two Portland-based artists embarking on a dream. Free Life Center houses their optimism and creativity, and you are invited to join them as they take their mobile art center on a nomadic journey.
Inspired by the community of free thinkers around them , they bring knowledge of earthy spirituality and simplicity to encourage others to share the ‘free life’ through hosting an experience of music, art, skillshare, storytelling, and creativity.
Free Life Center is a large scale freestanding installation crafted from salvaged building materials. the one-room structure emanates the artists’ homespun aesthetic and their commitment to a high level of DIY craftsmanship. The construction is modular (built in sections) and can be adapted to suit a variety of configurations along their journey, whether it is a traditional gallery space or a site-specific event outdoors.
These vagabond dreamers will host community events, musical performances, workshops, drawing parties, and more within the walls of the Free Life Center at all stops along their Art-tour starting in June 2010. From the structure itself, to the art, inspiration, collaborations and experiences of their newest project, mark and Seth hope to spread ideas that can lead to a more healthy, happy, and creative free life.” – Leslie Miller, Pacific Northwest College of Art
