Special Event

Sunday, March 25, 1 pm - 4 pm
Multipurpose Room

1-4 pm. Producers of FestiFools are excited to announce the second annual public art event FoolMoon, featuring hundreds of handmade illuminated sculptural lanterns. Come learn how to make a free "luminary" based on the LS&A theme semester "Language: The Human Quintessence." Everything you need to create an illuminated sculpture out of tissue paper, wire, LED lights, and imagination will be provided.
 
Once your sculptures are made you will want to join other FoolMoon celebrants on Friday, March 30 (gathering at dusk on the UMMA front lawn) for a culminating procession (to Downtown Ann Arbor!) for a celebration of handmade illuminated lanterns, live music, and a shimmering giant street-sized shadow puppet show! What a great way to celebrate spring! For more information go to http://festifools.org.

Guided Tour

Sunday, March 25, 2 pm - 3 pm

Noted for blurring the boundaries between art and life, Fluxus artists such as George Maciunas, Nam June Paik, George Brecht, and Yoko Ono, among many others, challenged the notion of high art by creating unassuming, often humorous objects and performances. Their work redefined the terms of artistic production by demonstrating the idea that "anything can be art and anyone can do it" and by their disregard for traditional artistic media.
