Celebrate Summer at the Second Annual Blue Roof Studios Arts Festival June 22nd
We had so much fun last year, we decided to do it again. Blue Roof Studios will hold their 2nd annual Arts Festival on June 22, 2019 from noon to 5pm.
Celebrating the summer solstice and the arts in South Los Angeles, the festival will host over 100 visual artists, musicians, dancers and performers. Admission is free and the public is welcome to join in workshops for art-making and cooking.
Last June, the Festival featured over 100 artists: visual artists, musicians, dancers and performers. It drew 450 attendees from the surrounding community and beyond, who came to view the exhibitions, participate in workshops, sample the array of food offered, shop in the art bazaar and experience the performances.
Art installations will include EPHEMERA, a group show curated by Mario Ezquita under the direction of Jill Moniz in the Blue Roof Studios sanctuary and selected outdoor public spaces. Let me eat cake, a multi-media group show of Los Angeles based artists curated by Kristine Schomaker will be presented in the project room. In addition, Blue Roof Studios resident artists Galia Linn, Diana Magui, Adele Kandarian, Terri Klass, Jacqueline Palafox, Cole James, and Sarah Gail Armstrong will open their studios for the event.
Art making workshops will include; a clay workshop by artist Beverly Morrison, a recycled materials art workshop organized by Barnsdall Arts, Books that Breathe by Cole James, chalk drawing by Amanda Maciel Antunes and participatory mural painting on the outside of the building with Arts Bridging the Gap.
Live music and performances will be provided throughout the day by returning musicians Joaquin Romero /DJ Wordamouph and Aboubacar Kouyate leading a participatory drum circle. Allison M Keating of Wild Art Group will present a tiny toy theater performance Finally, a Play about Joy.
