I am participating in the Red Hot Art festival this weekend. First outdoor festival I have ever done! I will be in a tent. Should be interesting. So far, the preparations I’ve imagined I will do for this involve re-bubble-wrapping the art hanging on my walls and pulling out the rest from the closet, reprinting the signage I used for Art-a-Whirl but replacing the word “Art-a-Whirl” with “Red Hot Art,” carting everything over there with various supplies that I can use to rig up some sort of hanging system, and more or less winging it. Good plan, yes? I have a stash of temporary tattoos leftover from AAW to sell as well.
The when: Saturday, July 28th from 11am-7pm and Sunday, July 29th 11-5
The where: Stevens Square Park is located just south of downtown Minneapolis, between 18th / 19th Street (one block north of Franklin Avenue) and Stevens / 2nd Ave (two blocks east of Nicollet Avenue, one block west of 3rd Avenue).
A list of artists to be found and musicians to be listened to throughout the weekend can be found at redhotart.org. I’ve only heard of maybe two of the bands, I think? So that should also be interesting.
