GA/GI Details: Puppets, Pottery, Paper and Mini P Shake Monster UP
With giant cartoon squid tentacles unfolding over the newly renovated Union Project building, the flyer for the UP's Monster Open House event (or flier for some of you), is as eye-catching as the eye lashed eye balls that peer out from the illustration. The "monster" event begins at 9:30 am on Saturday, April 7 @ 801 N. Negley Avenue with coffee, breakfast and a community clean-up. From Noon until 6 pm the day is filled with family activities that shake, rattle and roll. For instance: Kids play giant puppet dress-up with artist/performer Cheryl Capezutti ; enjoy a multi-generational ceramics showcase; treat the whole family to zumba and yoga samplers and there's a Monster fashion show with Into the Mirror Productions. Also on the scene are friends from GA/GI Festival: Paper maker Katy DeMent, a resident artist on loan from the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, will help you create your own handmade paper bookmark using natural materials, recyclables, and embellishments inspired by the tech world. Plus visit David Edwards, his mini Power Flower and his way cool techno bugs from Art Energy Design.
