Art Briefs – April 24

Cosmic agents sponsor an Old Town art event

Viva el Arte is an arts “happening” conceived by Homer’s Cosmic Agents, an art corps convened by Bunnell Street Arts Center, celebrating youthful energy, experiment, ideas and community.
Viva el Arte is an evening event open to everyone. It follows the First Friday art opening at Bunnell Street Arts Center from 5 to 7 pm. The event includes performance art featuring a live mariachi band, pinatas, a roach coach (food on the front porch) and a camera obscura in a U-Haul Truck above Bishop’s Beach at the end of Main Street.
A seaside confessional will also be offered, as will a fire at Bishop’s Beach for burning old art. All of these events take place on May 3 starting at 7 p.m.
Viva el Arte begins with pinata-making at Bunnell on Saturay, April 27 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bring supplies such as wire, newspaper, wheat paste, tissue paper, etc. to share. All ideas, forms and fillings are welcome. For more information email
