San Rafael, CA

Lara’s Lab/Lara Myers focuses on the experimentation with and the exploration of documentary installation art. Please stop by Lara‘s Lab in Studio 19 at Art Works Downtown and participate in the newest project called, “Things Guys Actually Said To Me.” Custom necklaces are made using text that is summarized from stories that women share about their experiences with sexual harassment and discrimination, sexism, and misogyny. Each participant will receive her custom necklace for free. The necklaces will also be available for sale (all proceeds go back into the project). The idea is that by wearing a necklace of someone else’s story, you share her experience and the burden of her story becomes spread out among many women.

Lara Myers is an Army brat, a godchild of a Charo backup singer, a former dancer for the San Francisco band, ArmaGetItOn, and a documentary installation artist. She was the 2016–2017 Max Thelen Studio Residency artist at Art Works Downtown.
