A Fantastical Celebration of the Arts

Thousands will enjoy three days of events at the 2010 Festival. This year, we open the Cabinet of Curiosities, showcasing visual, performance and literary art, interactive installations, film, after parties, workshops, and a museum-quality Festival Store.

The cabinet will hold a fantastical celebration of the arts. We invite you to discover what treasures and wonders lay inside.

Visual Art

Festival jurors and curators selected visual art from over 1,600 entries submitted by more than 400 artists. “We’re excited to present a comprehensive collection of contemporary art, diverse in medium, sexual proclivities, body type, age, ethnicity, and gender,” says Festival Director Anna Hurwitz.

Performance

The 2010 Festival includes an original theatrical production entitled Cabaret de Curiosités, written and directed by award-winning NYC-based director Roger Benington. This piece is being produced in collaboration with locally and nationally recognized performance artists, including an original score composed by John Woods from the internationally acclaimed comedy cabaret duo, The Wet Spots.

Interactive Installations

This year the Festival offered its first grant to artists to create interactive art installations. Audience members are invited to help artist Nancy Peach complete a massive canvas; write and receive love letters in a special bedroom designed by award-winning artist Ellen Forney and Jacob Peter Fennell; lounge on luxurious metalwork beds; and engage the art in many other ways.

Literary Art

Returning for its second year, the Literary Art Showcase will present jury-selected poems, short stories and plays in intimate readings. The Festival will spotlight Naked Girls Reading on Friday and Saturday nights.

MALE MUSE
"Whenever I was depressed or disgusted, I would feel him, that spirit inside, urging me back to living, back to drawing, I believe there is a lot to the world that can’t be seen or touched, and if you turn away from that — especially if you are an artist — you are avoiding an important part of life, maybe the very heart of it.” — Tom of Finland
