Park[ing] Day Dance Festival is Sept. 20th
Nina Haft & Company, in collaboration with visual artist Lauren Elder and Berkeley High School, present an Art Carnival, with free dance and games all day in downtown Berkeley. Find us in front of 2201 Shattuck Avenue in Berkeley, near the corner of Allston Way. We are one block from BART and near several bus lines.
Park[ing] Day is an international public art event created by Rebar/SF. All over the planet, folks are occupying parking spaces, making prime open space in our cities available for everyone’s enjoyment.
Over 100 professional and student artists are participating this year in Nina Haft & Company’s Park[ing] Day Dance Festival.
Nina Haft has been working for the past 2 weeks with dancers from Berkeley High School on choreography about City Living. Lauren Elder has been working with students from California College of Art to design our ‘park’.
