Teens Celebrate Art with GeekGirlCon and SAM

Teens 13 to 18:  Join GeekGirlCon and the Seattle Art Museum for an evening celebrating the accomplishments of women in the arts this Friday, December 7 from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m.

Hear live music, watch dance and spoken word performances, play instruments, learn and perform choreography, and create your own works of art at workshops inspired by the new exhibitions Elles: Women Artists from the Centre Pompidou, Paris and Elles: SAM—Singular Works by Seminal Women Artists. Free admission for teens 13-18 (and accompanying adults).

Elles: Pompidou features works of art created by over 75 women artists between 1907 and 2007.

Elles: SAM features works by an additional 30 female artists, including special loans and works from SAM’s permanent collections.

There will be something for visitors of every age at this community celebration! Stop by the GeekGirlCon booth in the South Hall to play a round of “Ten Things I Know About You,” a game about famous female geeks and geekery. Spin the wheel for a topic and then name everything you can think of about it in the next 30 seconds. Surprise yourself with how much you know and maybe even win a prize!

“Rock On!”

Laurel McJannet

Back in the day (we won’t say when), Laurel cut out words from Seventeen™, took pictures of friends/cute boys, and arranged them onto her PeeChee, protecting the final masterpiece with strips of Scotch tape as makeshift lamination. Fast-forward a ”few” years later where Laurel now writes, designs and consults as a marketing professional. (She has a B.A. in Communications and a MARCOM Certificate from the University of Washington.) The day she got access from IT to update a website (using straight up HTML, BTW) was the day she became… A GEEK. This website led to more websites and managing major ecommerce projects. Today, there isn’t a CMS she can't figure out, she’s mastered the art of translating tech-speak for the non-techie, and she is proof that marketing and IT can co-exist and not implode. Laurel enjoys all things Apple™, yoga, and the antics of her 8-year-old son (which she writes about on her blog and FB.) She is a recovering Tetris, Farmville, Café World and Cityville social gamer who now feeds her addiction with Clash of Clans, Plants vs. Zombies, Faireway Solitare, Draw Something, and Words with Friends on her iPad. Let’s play!
