Description: Part installation, part performance, wholly participatory. These ongoing socially-engaged works by artist and instructor William Chambers use the power of art objects to foster conversation on important issues and to allow for the unexpected.

Service Station begins with a vintage cloth hand-towel dispenser. Participants are asked to describe What's missing? in the world or in their lives. Their answers are turned into symbols and then embroidered on the towel. Service Stations has collected more than 300 responses in its tour of ten cities to date. This will be its first showing in Worcester.

Repairs is an old-fashioned street-cart repair shop. Costumed repairers invite participants to bring objects (and less tangible items) to be repaired on the spot. Whether a practical fix is desired or a more fantastical transformation is created, personal interaction and surprising conversations are the inevitable result. This fall, Repairs will debut at Clark University, with public repair events at 920 Main Street on the following Saturdays from 2-6pm: September 16, October 21, November 4, and November 18. Fixed items will be on display in the Higgins Lounge at Dana Commons.
