The “7 Arts Summer Festival” is a celebration of the original art forms. It will provide a venue where these art forms and the people who love them can come and share their passion for a particular one while also understanding that each one uplifts and honors the next. Music, Film, Dance, Poetry, Comedy, Theatre and Art will all be on display at the 7 Arts Summer Festival. It will be a day that holds up each art form and acknowledges the critical role that the form plays in defining our culture.
The “7 Arts Summer Festival” is a groundbreaking arts concept. It is a festival that recognizes that art is subjective commodity and artists often produce work that reflect or is influenced by their surroundings. The “7 Arts Summer Festival” will utilize stage time and designated areas of Commodore Barry Park to allow community members an opportunity to partake in each art form. There will be featured artists at the festival to provide a stylized experience that will hi-lite each art form. Attendees will be treated to an opportunity to view, up close the creative process and observe art being created on the spot by some of the Tri-State areas most noted artists.
Radio City Music Hall was originally conceived as a venue where all of the 7 arts could be housed under one roof. To this day, it hosts numerous events that feature a majority of the 7. The “7 Arts Summer Festival” will bring all of the art forms to Commodore Barry Park in the summer of 2015 and make them accessible to members of the community who may not have the time or wherewithal to seek them out in the venues where they are usually on display. Since there is no charge to enter the Festival, only a suggested donation, the majority of community members should be able to access the park and partake in a day of activities planned to heighten the senses and feed the artistic curiousness in everyone.
Ultimately the “7 Arts Summer Festival” will be a celebration of the diverse tastes of the Brooklyn community and beyond. It will give way to wonder on the part of the attendees and artists to think what will be the next wonderful creation of art that captures all of our imaginations.
