The Harrison Street DIY crew is teaming up with the Trailer of Truth on Saturday, September 16, 2017. The ToTLuck begins at 5PM with a potluck dinner and the event continues until 10PM. Chile, lemonade and water will be provided. Attendees are encouraged to bring a dish to share and to provide their own beverages. The event hopes to provide awareness to new people being exposed to Harrison Street or ToT. The event aims to provide an enjoyable art enriched experience with a family friendly feel.
The event is a collaboration between two Rocket Grant projects. The Harrison St DIY location was a 2015-16 Rocket Grant project for the Columbus Skate Park. The ToTluck is a current Rocket Grant project that is challenging theexpectations and views of what installations should be defined as.
A few tables and chairs will be set up, but attendees are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs, picnic style. While attendees eat their picnics, activities such as Baggo (aka “corn hole”) and Giant Jenga, will be set up on the grass area and chess and sidewalk chalk on asphalt surface (away from skating.)
Inside the Trailer of Truth, the Tiny ToT Gallery will be set up with photographs displayed on a monitor, featuring the four artists/photographers who are making images about Harrison St. DIY (or their interpretation of the Columbus Park neighborhood.) These images will later become the projections. Also there will be a print displayed from each photographer, gallery style. Artists will be encouraged to provide a short artist statement.
Photographers are Phil Peterson, MOI (Don Wilkison), Megan Pobywajlo-Bailey and Emily Evans Sloan. Live music will be provided by Mark Smeltzer and friends.
