Fri., JuArtBeatly 20 at 6pm thru Sat., July 21 at 6pm: The ArtBeat 2012 theme is Migration.

On July 20 & 21, the Somerville Arts Council will present one of the area’s largest and most innovative arts festivals, complete with two stages of music with over a dozen bands, dance troupes, 75 craft vendors, food and migration-themed activities.  Stay tuned for calls to craft vendors, talent, and community and food vendors.

Migration evokes many ideas: movement, immigration, Monarch butterflies fluttering en masse and New England snowbirds heading to Florida’s balmy shores. We encourage artists to explore migration in various ways. Visual artists might explore how forms morph and move—like atoms within a molecule, for example. Dancers might explore flight patterns of migratory birds. Other ideas include an interactive map project in which Somervillians trace their migratory route to Somerville. Migration also can be explored from environmental, geo-political and inter-galactic angles. We look forward to your creative interpretations of this year’s theme!
