Park[ing] Day Dances for 2012
We are gearing up for Park[ing] Day Dances 2012
Please join Nina Haft & Co. on Friday, September 21st….we’ll have so much fun!!!
Scroll down for performance times in our ‘park’…..
Park[ing] Day is an international public art event that encourages people to take back public space in our cities. For one day all over the planet, artists and other creative spirits ‘rent’ parking spaces and turn them into parks – places for everyone to enjoy. This event was created in 2005 by REBAR, a visionary SF design group. For more info on Park[ing] Day, maps of Park(ing) Day parks near you, and more, visit:
Nina Haft & Co. and friends will be at 2201 Shattuck Avenue, near the corner of Allston Way in downtown Berkeley. We have a wonderful lineup this year, and an exciting new addition to our program this year: Lauren Elder (Bay Area environmental and installation artist) is working with her students at California College of Art to design our ‘park’ with recycled and reused items. We’ll have a lifesize game of Jenga for you to play with, and much more. At Berkeley High School, Miriam Stahl’s students are making original T-Shirts for performers to wear.
