Fri 9/22 – Sun 9/23
Forget what you know about all the other festivals.
The 13th edition of IngenuityFest: Metamorphosis is unlike anything you’ve seen. Fully at home in their enormous industrial venue, The Hamilton Collaborative at 5401 Hamilton, a block north of St. Clair, Ingenuity is preparing surprising artist projects in pods throughout the labyrinthine venue.
Having fully morphed into IngenuityLABS, a year-round locus for artists and creators, and partnering with 10 maker start-ups, the annual Fest, Fri 9/22 – Sun 9/24, is now the glittering and public tip of the iceberg.
Visitors will witness the Propane Dance Floor, Leaping Off The Wall, a live butterfly experience, and the Mechanique Biotique, a former scrapyard on the festival site being transformed to a teaching garden with live metalworking demonstrations. Plus the return of the Makers Mecca, the spectacular Tesla Orchestra, local food trucks and breweries.
Ingenuity co-founder Thomas Mulready spoke with artistic director Emily Appelbaum and marketing/development guru Annie Weiss, the brain trust behind Ingenuity 2017. Don’t miss it.
