Hello one and all, please join us! May 11th, 7:30pm for the 27th installment of The Chase Public Response Project - this time focused on the mural at the corner of Colerain and Elam in Camp Washington titled “Campy Washington” - the mural was designed by Scott Donaldson for ArtWorks in 2008, and depicts George Washington in drag accompanied by flying pigs and what appears to be a very happy cow. 

The respondents have been given total autonomy to respond however feels most appropriate to them; which could vary from musical performance, to poetry, dance, lecture, rant, powerpoint, game, anything. They each have 10 minutes to express, perform, or share their response to this piece of art - informed by their experience, perspective, and opinion.

Inspired by Pianist Brianna Matzke’s “The Stockhausen Response Project,” The Chase Public Response Project is an opportunity for creators and audiences to interact with art in a new way. Writers, artists, performers, and thinkers are assembled monthly(ish) to give their interpretation and share their impressions of the selected piece; they are given free range to do so by any means they choose. 

Chase Public is a collaborative space for art and assembly. Chase Public was conceived with the intent to create an environment that could help balance consumption with creativity, individualism with collaboration, high art with honest work and plain language.  Chase Public hosts poetry readings, music concerts, art openings, book signings, independent theater, stand-up comedy, hotly-contested debates, collaborative art-making, radical activism workshops, crazy-ass parties, and maybe one bird fight. Mostly poetry readings.
