Meghann Snow: Dance Drawing Series

From August 5th to 12th, CMA’s gallery will play host to performance artist and former ballet dancer/figure skater Meghann Snow, whose ‘Dance Drawing Series’ focuses on muscle memory and use of the body to create lasting impressions. Using industrial materials such as tape and bubble wrap to create “ballet shoes,” Snow creates wearable footwear which she uses to dance on large-scale canvases while inscribing them with acrylic paint. Visitors are encouraged to create their own ballet shoes under Meghann’s direction and join in the process of painting a large scale collaborative mural with their feet. Visitors will dance on canvas to form circles, axis, loops,and lobes, finishing with a life-size representation of their performance on a 2D canvas space.
