Space 4 Art and the San Diego Guild of Puppetry are presenting ART FUN, a free giant puppet parade for kids of all ages as part of the lunchtime festivities for during the San Diego Contemporary Art Fair. We envision the parade as a community event for children celebrating the Arts of San Diego on the downtown waterfront. The activities will take place at the Hilton Hotel Amphitheater on September 4, 2011 from 11 am to 2 pm.
We are asking you to help fund this exciting, multicultural, child and family centered event. Your contribution of any amount over $10 will help pay for art materials and mentoring by professional artist/puppeteers for children and their families, many of whom have had little or no exposure to the arts. We envision up to 100 parade participants attending a series of pre-parade workshops, creating masks, banners, and puppets then bringing them to life in a joyful, drum-led pageant on parade day, celebrating the power of the arts to bring us all together.
All participants will benefit tremendously from your generosity and your support will enable us to begin a new tradition with this inaugural San Diego ART FUN Giant Puppet Parade.
Dont rain on our paradePlease share this with your friends and family, and please come out on September 4th to join the fun!
