Artist William Chambers and his Service Station project

SERVICE STATION: What's missing in the world?

  • When: Saturday, February 6, 2016
  • What Time: 10am–4pm
  • Cost: Free with Museum Admission

Artist William Chambers brings his interactive experience, Service Station, on tour to AVAM on Saturday, February 6. The project invites participants to respond to the question: "What is missing in your life or the world?" Participants are then invited to talk about their experiences, and contribute to the project by embroidering their answers on a 40 yard long "rest room towel." Visitors will see the communal responses from the many participants at the various stops that Service Station has made in 2015 and 2016. For more information on the project and Chambers works, visit:
