Lots to do for everyone in the family including participatory activities such as screen printing with Rebekah Tolley, street art style painting instruction with Josh Boyark and face painting with Alicia Lee of Paint Cohoes. A number of artists from the Troy Art Block mural project will be on hand representing their work. Additionally, this event will see a collaborative promotional performance with the Contemporary Circus and Immersive Arts Center (CCiAC), a Troy based not for profit focused on raising awareness with its introduction to the circus arts. This summer CCiAC will be setting up a big top tent for their annual ‘Circus in the Park’ event in Prospect Park for 10 days of circus activities including a youth camp, and public and private performance events.
