This is part of the message I send to festival planners to get into the festival:
Inside the triangles of the dome are panels that have been painted with chalkboard paint. Using sidewalk chalk the festival goers have the opportunity to engage in turning the black panels of the geodome into a wonderful, magical, colorful work of community art. As the festival goes on, the onlookers and participants can watch as the geodome morphs into a vivid, multicolored installation. Festival goers can spend hours taking advantage of the many activities it has to offer.
The opportunity for festival goers to engage in a community art piece and express their creativity is the main usage goal. It gives people a chance to be apart of the art, rather than viewing it from the outside. A symbol of how a community can come together to take something dark and ominous and transform it into something beautiful. It also provides shade to beat the heat, a conversation circle, and a great meeting area.
Ideally, I would like to receive some compensation for my art, but I will accept free admission and vending. I will provide all the chalk and other fun and safe mediums for the people to use (no permanent markers/harmful chemicals). No electricity is needed. I will provide the easy setup/ take down.
