Looking for a fun, outdoor event this weekend?

ArtWorkX will take place from 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. on Saturday May 27th at Celebration Square as part of National Public Works Week.

The city describes the event as one that merges art, infrastructure, city-building, and environment in an interactive all-day art performance and experience.

The activities sound creative and engaging, including an art sale, a Blooming Raingarden provided by Fern Ridge Landscaping, a bird-spotting scavenger hunt, a car extraction demonstration, and a charity barbeque.

Most notably, artists will transform city infrastructure into intriguing pieces of art during an all-day art performance set to a live DJ, DJ Lucky Pete.

Environmentally-themed documentaries and videos will also be screened at the event, including The Messenger in the Noel Ryan Auditorium at Central Library at 2:45 pm, which is about the plight and importance of songbirds, and a Q&A with producer Joanne Jackson, complete with bird-friendly door prizes.

There will also be children’s activities such as a station where they can create an environmentally-themed art piece.

Participating artists include C Ghirardo, Nisreen Askar, Gaya Kairos, and Dominic Simone.
