Activity Area

Performance Date and Time : 
Saturday, July 20 12:00 PM

This area will host a number of family-friendly interactive projects and tables all day long on Saturday. These will include past hits like face painting, a caricature artist, and Open Air Circus. This year, we’ll also have a funky photo booth from Outside the Lines, and an micro archaeological dig by Ariel Freiberg. This project, entitled "Dream Harvester" submerges paintings under heaps of dirt to be unearthed by Freiberg and the ArtBeat public. Using gardening tools, Freiberg and participants will scratch at the soil, revealing glimpses of paintings that depict the dreams of Somerville residents. (Freiberg collected this information at Artbeat 2011).
