Here is something I found, that seems pretty interesting… a GREEN ART PARADE!
I took this from the LACN Digest #3040
Green Public Art Consultancy invites artists, performers and designers
to create floats, placards, portable sculptures, kites, performances,
art bikes, balloons and street spectacles for a Green Art Parade! Parade
entries can make political statements, environmental messages. For
inspiration, visit this pinterest board to get those wheels turning!
The route will begin at a location TBD in North Park and will conclude
at Art Produce (3139 University Ave, San Diego, CA 92104). Participants
must be able to walk, run, and/or roll the entire route. The route will
not exceed 1 mile in length.
The Green Art Parade will occur on two dates, Saturday, July 13, 2013
