Starting at Noon on Saturday, May 21, at Kaleideum North, families will immerse themselves in goo, gunk, and grit to create art and explore science.
From mud painting and oobleck pools to confetti cannons and foot painting, there will be plenty of ooey, gooey, slimy messes to dive into. Local artists will also be on hand to help guests create collaborative works of art using various media and techniques.
Artists participating in MESStival include: Stewart Knight of Red Dog Gallery, Cat Redmond of Cat Redmond Art, and Victoria Vassar.
Bring a towel! Kaleideum will provide hoses to clean up outside. And the day will end with music! At 3 pm, Big Bang Boom — a high energy kindie rock band — will put on a concert in the Outdoor Science Park amphitheater.
