Future Fest: Art

We’ve got music. We’ve got food. We’ve got an acre full of fun. But it wouldn’t be Future Fest without art, art, art. This year, there’s art to see, art to wear, art to throw, art to buy—and plenty of art to make!

Local artists make a big splash at Future Fest. Gail Walters and Sarah Howie will have their work for sale, and you will be able to find jewelry by Sarah DeChellis, ceramics by Elizabeth Brouwer, and a whole lineup of homemade products from Cassandra’s Soaps. It’s always fun to meet an artist and ask about their work! You can also check out some of the murals and art installations in and around Huss, including some brand new pieces. During the rummage sale, you can check out Patrick Hershberger’s just-completed murals, which now grace several rooms in the school — including this year’s photo booth!

Of course, there will be face painting and a variety of interactive adventures at the Coin Carnival (10:00am – 2:00pm). Be sure to create an Art Dart masterpiece with your friends, using paint-filled balloons on a giant wood “canvas.” You can also get henna tattoos from Lorijo Nerad (or watch her creations take shape on someone else). And the incomparable Richard Price will be demonstrating his distinctive line drawing techniques throughout the day. Don’t forget to stop by the photo booth!

Finally, you’re invited to contribute to a permanent art installation at Huss: triangulated window murals! If you’re not sure what these are, come learn with us from Artist Guild members. Join us at the Coin Carnival between 10:00am and 2:00pm, and contribute to a new look for the south end of the building.
