Big Love 

When: Sat., March 12 2016
A self-described “civically engaging arts festival that uses arts and culture to involve its participants in broader community building initiatives,” Big Love, Akron’s annual winter community festival, offers a little of everything, including art installations, vendor tables, community-building workshops and cooking demos. The event, which takes place today from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. at the Summit Artspace building, will also feature music and theatrical performances, interactive art installations, and community-building workshops and activities for the whole family. More than 30 visual artists will display their interactive pieces created to “foster city-wide collaboration and inspire in individuals a sense of empowerment in building their community together.” One installation space will represent the north, south, east, and west sides of Akron, with each quadrant depicted through the interpretation of two artists from different ethnic backgrounds, while Akron-area organizations guide hands-on activities. Local acts such as Zach and the Bright Lights, Shivering Timbers, Acid Cats, the Help and the Hands, the Angie Haze Project, Light of the Loon, Gretchen Pleuss Band, DJ Roger Riddle, Acoustic Umojah Nation, Chris Hatton, Moustache Yourself, Brent Kirby, Rhodes Street Rude Boys and A-MINUS are slated to play..

Ace Epps and the Wandering Aesthetics will emcee the performances for the day. (Niesel)
