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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
