Springfield Community Invited ‘To Be The Art’

Springfield Community Invited ‘To Be The Art’


The INOUT:Springfield installations will reflect photos and responses from community members and be available in English, Spanish, Korean and Arabic.

ARTSFAIRFAX launches its third Imagine Art Here project on June 20. INOUT:Springfield engages the community through photos and questions on the role of arts where you live.

The art installation, created by the artist team Epigram, will be installed at Old Keene Mill Shopping Center, July 13 – Aug. 9, and Springfield Town Center, Aug. 10 – 23. The INOUT:Springfield installations will reflect photos and responses from community members and be available in English, Spanish, Korean and Arabic.

"Imagine Art Here projects are designed to engage the community where they are," said Linda S. Sullivan, ARTSFAIRFAX president. "TheINOUT:Springfield project presents the opportunity for the public to have a voice in and participate in creating art. This is a great opportunity to experience art."

The artist-designed photo booths will pop up at various locations throughout Springfield, June 20 – July 6. The public will be able to take their picture, individually, as a group, with pets or with their family, and answer six questions about their role in the community and their opinions on art. Additional opportunities to participate are available through the website: www.INOUTEXPERIENCE.com.
