Protest Puppets (Portland)
February 5, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Please join us as at Mayo Street Arts to build large-scale puppets and masks to be used in an upcoming rally in Portland on April 15th. The concept for this puppet extravaganza is rooted in the tradition of the “Ancient and Horribles” parades of New England past. These critical occasions were meant to satirize politicians and public figures. It’s time to resurrect this art form – in these unsteady days, we could not have more reasons to MARCH!
Bring yourself and your friends and family! If you can, please contribute any materials that may be useful such as cardboard, paper bags, newspaper, fabric, hot glue gun, paints, scrap wood, etc. We will have some supplies on hand, but could always use the extra materials!
This event is organized by artist Chris Patch.
