DownStreet Art Projects brought interactive art making to the streets this summer. Projects included:
A hammock decorating project at the Eagle St. Beach Party:
Hands on Holden:
Partnering with Art About Town during the Down Town Celebration to create a street of symbolic hands. These hands will represent the people of the Berkshires coming together to change the landscape of downtown North Adams!!
Marafanyi Meets the Mural:
Using Alaa Awad’s ‘Justice’ mural as a catalyst for community collaboration. Through four workshops, the ladies of Marafanyi worked with community members to create a unique music/dance/spoken word interpretation of Awad’s mural. They shared this project with the community with a culminating share during the September DownStreet Art.
