Alex Eaves, reuse expert and filmmaker joins us along with his transformed box truck. Alex and former HGTV tiny house builder Derek "Deek" Diedricksen have teamed up to turn a box truck into a mobile reuse education center and living space. With a focus on sustainability, we’re pleased to introduce the Up-cycled Art exhibit exclusively by Massasoit’s students, staff, and faculty, and Printmaking with a Pasta Machine? You’ll want to give this a try.
Attractions also include fine art crafters indoors and outdoors, plein air painters, live music by the Bright Moments Band, and singer/guitarist Garry Coole. Attaquin Weeden, a citizen of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe, will perform a traditional hand drum exhibition. Attaquin is also the featured “runner” in the “Our”Story exhibit. Food service by Peppercorns Café & Catering of Stoughton. There is face painting, a bouncy house and lawn games, kid’s art activity tent, and the always popular giant steamroller printmaking and ceramics studio demonstrations.
