On June 26th AIA Wichita hosted its first ever Final Friday Exhibit “The Art of Spontaneity” where 300 napkin sketches from Architects, Artists, Designers and others in the community were displayed inside a shipping container.
The napkin sketch show featured doodles, notes and diagrams created at that moment of inspiration where one reaches for whatever there is handy to get the idea out. There seems to be a lost craft of visually representing ideas by hand in the digital age we live in and this show was created to revive that craft! All members of the community were invited to show off a variety of napkin sketches. Napkins were collected from architects, artists, designers, kids, comedians, beer brewers, tattoo artists, mathematicians and many others, each contributing their own unique style of sketching. Napkins and pens were available the night of the show and visitors added over 200 more spontaneously inspired sketches that evening, helping the gallery grow.
The event was an amazing success! See more photos on twitter @AIAWichita or Instagram using #ICTNapkinSketch
