HAVERSTRAW RIVERART PROJEX: 4, Live Art Event, is an interactive art project assembled on site with a mission to express and interpret the “cultural landscape” of this vibrant river town through art, celebrating the strength of melding its diverse cultural heritage with the mixing of the mediums, wind + light + water + sound. The art may take the form of any art media that can withstand the weather and site conditions for one day. Immersive mixed media installations of sculpture, painting, mixed media, tactical and site performance, temporal installations, video, sound projections, or multimedia digital platforms are acceptable.
