Summer Solstice Festival Recap
On June 18, 2011, Baltimore Art and Music Project had their first Summer Solstice Festival and Solstice Twilight. It was fantastic to see the the staff, volunteers, Artist Compound, musicians, vendors, and artists hard work pay off. As well as, coming together through a means of art, music and community.
There were many children's activities to keep younger attendees entertained and creative.
One of these activities included "Every Day Is Earth Day" promoting keeping the Earth clean.
Early festival-goers were getting the day started off right by rockin' acoustic tunes from Brian and Jay of The Martians.
One of my favorite qualities about the festival was the amount of variety in the different types of art mediums.
Lindsay Mack displayed her wonderful artwork in her fine arts tent.
I received a cute, little peace sign on my shoulder from the sweetest lady. It was a great conversation starter.
Many lovely and unique bags and dresses were available for purchase. I personally liked one of the handmade purses from Thailand.
Carla Crisp and Baltimore's Best Hon, hon.
Due to their drummer breaking his hand, Echoes In Color played an acoustic set (for the first time) and did a great job nonetheless.
Helping with Summer Solstice has definitely been one of my favorite events as a Baltimore Art and Music Project workstudy. I am already counting down to next year's festival, and hope that it will only grow and prosper. Check back to our website soon for photos and a review of the Summer Solstice Twilight.
