This summer, Occidental Park will become a showcase for the creative imagination of artists. Using this public space as art space, artists will produce everything from street theater, dance, or temporary sculpture to music, media art, or whatever their imagination might envision, bringing the challenge and spark of art into the day-to-day life of downtown. The end result: Occidental Park becomes a place where art and life intertwine–where one goes to meet the unexpected and catch some of the freshest work from local and visiting artists.
