Field Drawings With Alyssa Lizzini

Alyssa Lizzini’s Field Drawings is a series of free workshops and a culminating exhibition of location-based drawings created by Lizzini and community participants. On-location drawing workshops will take place in five neighborhoods: Broadway-Slavic Village, Detroit-Shoreway, Midtown, Tremont, and University Circle. Ten participants in each workshop will be provided with sketchbooks, drawing materials, and the opportunity to submit a drawing to the final exhibition in June of 2023. The goal of the project is to challenge preconceived notions of urban spaces while encouraging connections through the process of observational drawing. The exhibition title, Field Drawings, takes its inspiration from the traditional definition of field research, which is “the collection of raw data from outside a laboratory, library, or workplace setting.” Lizzini and community participants will be collecting field data and performing visual research through their neighborhood excursions, connecting them more deeply with a given space. The final exhibition will allow the viewer to see a new vision of Cleveland through the eyes of Lizzini and all who participated. This project strives to change viewpoints, unite neighborhoods, and solidify drawing’s contemporary significance as a means for connection.
