ArtBeat 2018: Flip

ArtBeat is one of the area's largest and most innovative arts festivals, with over a dozen bands, dance troupes, 75 craft vendors, food, and all-age activities.

On Saturday, July 14th we shut down Davis Square for craft vendors, two stages of music, dance in the Somerville Theater, and a host of great interactive peformances from 11 am to 10 pm.

This year's ArtBeat theme is "flip", a celebration of all things upside down, backwards and sideways. We invite artists and community members to explore how flipping things around can change your point of view. Does flipping things make them better, or worse? How does the idea of flipping things around inform a work of art or concept? "Flip" evokes many things: rapid change; inverting the status quo; changing your mind; flipping a coin; flipping houses; or turning the whole world upside down! Perhaps it's time to flip a switch - literally or figuratively. Are there things that make you want to flip out? Does this winter make you yearn for your flip flops?

For ArtBeat, perhaps we need acrobats flipping through the square, or someone flipping giant pancakes? Let's flip this festival on its head. We look forward to your creative interpretation of this theme!
