Final Fantasy Art Show
January 14 11:00 am - January 15 9:00 pm
It’s not the end that matters! It’s knowing that you have something to live for right now, at this moment! Something you’ve worked for… something that’s worth protecting! As long as you have that…that’s enough!
– Terra Branford, Final Fantasy VI
Do you like Final Fantasy? Do you like to draw? Do you like art at all? If you answered yes to any of those questions then come on out!
Anyone can come and make drawings around the theme of “Final Fantasy” and get your drawings hung in a massive epic drawing mural. Recreate stills from gameplay, draw from memories you have playing the games, or (if you never played the games) just meditate on the meaning of the words “final” and “fantasy” and draw from there. Old strategy guides will be on hand as reference points. Final Fantasy is a wide ranging series that explores ecological issues, misuse of technology, class disparity, and the nature of memory… So there’s a lot of material to work with. The work will be installed and exhibited as it’s made by anyone who wants to come- blurring the line between audience and artist in a way that reflects the porous and ephemeral relationship between a video game and it’s players. This workshop is for everyone who likes to draw no matter how talented you think you are or aren’t.
