INTERACTIVE ART:

Celebrate the creative spirit of youth with interactive art projects for our youngest festival attendees, including commemorative button pins, bookmarks, and festive masks. Supplies and materials for the kids’ craft generously donated by Sullivan’s Toys & Art Supplies.

Art becomes personal with free henna tattoos – not to worry, these tattoos are only temporary.

Irene Chan facilitates I-Ching, the 3000-year-old Chinese oracle system that inspires individuals to seek their own answers. Consult the I-Ching, generate answers to your life questions, and leave with a print and/or temporary tattoo of your hexagram from rubber stamps hand-carved from Irene Chan’s original imagined imagery.

 

PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE:

10:00 pm A Cappella performance by the Singing Capital Chorus in front of the library
