MoHu 2012, in a hangar

mohu logo 2012The second MoHu arts festival starts next week, and runs from October 5-14. Like last year the festival is aiming to put a spotlight on the arts in the Capital Region by pulling together events at more than 100 venues around the area.

And the opening event for this year's festival is something different: MoHu Takes Flight -- an "interactive arts cocktail party" in a hangar at ALB. From the blurbage:

In addition to enjoying cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, you can help build a 44' sculpture of the Hudson River train bridge, test your musical abilities in the Instrument Petting Zoo, sample local artisans' fare, experience local artist Tony Iadicicco as he creates a work of art before your eyes or just stand back and watch it all to the rhapsodic sounds of the Teri Roiger Quartet. The evening culminates with the art of clothing with The Electric City Couture Fashion Show. Who knows what else the MoHu crew has up its creative sleeve!

We had a chance to talk with some of the organizers and it sounds like they have some fun plans for the space (and there's lots of it). The party is October 4 from 6-8 pm. Tickets are $50 / $30 for MoHu artists.

Comments

The link to the tickets page says it needs a MOHU code? Does anyone know what the code is?

The generic code to use is: Proctors
Sorry for the confusion, and we hope to see you there!

Thanks!

The bridge sculpture has been designed and will be built by local artist Peter Leue, who has drawn on the brilliant designs of Erector Set inventor A.C. Gilbert to create a sculpture in giant scale, out of Baltic birch plywood, stainless steel, and handmade hardwood nuts and bolts. The sculpture will represent the four points of the MoHu compass and the inter-connectedness of our regional culture. This work of installation art will have four outside towers connecting to a tall center tower with four classic truss bridges. The bridges will be assembled and connected during the cocktail party.
