Block Fest at CounterPulse animates our neighborhood with free arts activities for the local residents, workers, and visitors.
Contribute to a community sculpture assembled from found objects with Artist Activator Adam Herbst. Choose from a wide array of curious and beautiful materials to construct the creature and add your piece to its written history and taxonomy. To be displayed later for all to see!
Starting from a broad range of upcycled materials garnered from Scrap and other locations, participants will design and create a ‘Creature’ whose shape, attributes, abilities, and personal story—along with the history and taxonomy of its species—will be determined as we go along. We will provide a minimal skeleton, and artists can add body parts, color, texture, and any other aspects they’d like. In addition we will have an open slate where anyone can augment an ongoing story about the creature and its kind.
