ANNOUNCING THE 2018 ARTS IN NATURE FESTIVAL AT CAMP LONG
DNDA proudly presents the 19th Annual Arts in Nature Festival at Camp Long in West Seattle!
The 19th Annual Arts in Nature Festival August 25th & 26th at Camp Long will feature art, nature, and neighborhood. The theme for artist presentation is “Convergence”. Artists and audience members are encouraged to engage in active participation with each other, other art disciplines, and with the natural 68-acre landscape of Camp Long. The event is proudly presented by the Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association.
This year, the Arts in Nature Festival is particularly excited to feature music, on August 25th, by Reverend Pat Wright’s Total Experience Gospel Choir, as she is about to retire. The festival will also feature music from artists including Naomi Wachira, De Cajon, and Gamelan Pacifica. For those of you who want to experience poetry in nature, there will be a reading featuring Seattle Civic Poet Anastacia Renee, J Mace III, and Jordan Chaney.
You’ll find multiple intimate but spectacular outdoor performance spaces, weekend-long installations in eight rustic cabins by Shin Yu Pai & Michael Barakat, Robb Kunz, Celeste Cooning, Markeith Wiley & Laura Aschoff, and more!
There will be visual installations by Vaughn Bell, Sarah Kavage & Aaron Haba, live mural painting by Angelina Villalobos and Roache the Muralist.
You can become part of the festivities and create your own works of art in nature by participating in multiple interactive, family-friendly art activities, including performances by Northwest Puppet Center, linocuts, capoeira demonstrations & a labyrinth.
If you get hungry there will be a convoy of delicious, local food trucks and a beer garden where you can wet your whistle!
