Saturday July 15th Davis Square, Somerville MA
ArtBeat is Somerville's annual multi-media street party! The festival showcases the City's diverse and vibrant arts communities and attracts ten thousand visitors to Davis Square. Presented by the Somerville Arts Council (SAC) and Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone. ArtBeat is now its 31st year and features an eclectic mix of music, dance, theater, food, performance and interactive activities. More than 80 regional and local craft and fine art vendors, who create their own work, will be chosen to presented from afternoon.
2017 theme: VOICE
This year's ArtBeat theme is "Voice," a celebration of all things that have to do with being vocal —both literally and figuratively. How does a community find a collective voice and be heard? How does an individual find a voice to speak up and share thoughts, desires and frustration? From sotto voce to a loud roar, voices can take on all volumes, tones and timbres. What's your voice — and how does it harmonize or perhaps clash with other voices? Thinking in a more expansive way, voice doesn't have to be vocal or audible — it is more about advocacy. Someone doesn't always have to speak out loud to be heard; voice can embody all types of expression. We look forward to your creative interpretations of this theme — whether it's a proposed puppet show about a girl who loses her voice, dance choreography that addresses the voices we hear in our heads, or a sound installation about how giving voice can affect change. Surprise us! Get Vocal!
Submit 5 color photos or jpegs (on CD or USB) representing the current work you'll be exhibiting this year. Label each image with your last name followed by a number such as "leeman01".
