This annual art event features about a dozen artists making art on site with the public invited to observe (and participate if the artist so desires). This year’s invited artists use elements of performance in their artworks, using their own bodies, the bodies of others, and systematized actions to create works of art. The artists are Edith Abeyta, Matthew Conboy, Casey Droege, Corey Escoto, Andrea Sherrill Evans, April Flanders, Daniel Luchman, Patrick Schmidt, Becky Slemmons, Kirk Amaral Snow, Garett Yahn, Jennifer Yorke. This exhibition is supported in part by Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA), the regional arts funding partnership of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency.
