The Story

EVENT DATE: May 07, 2016

DEADLINE TO GIVE: May 07, 2016

                     1st Annual Flux-a-thon!

Flux Factory is one of NYC’s oldest and most affordable collectively-run art spaces. On Saturday, May 7th, we’re holding the 1st Annual "Flux-a-Thon" a spectacularly jubilant, semi-absurd twist on a traditional walk-a-thon, all to raise money for another year of Flux Factory’s unique collaborative residency program.

 

Teams of artists and marchers will wander through the streets of Long Island City with their best mobile art floats and roving spectacles. We'll head from Flux Factory to Smiling Hogshead Ranch, where guest judges Hrag Vartanian (Hyperallergic), Paddy Johnson (Art F City), Harriet Taub (Materials for the Arts), Kevin Baltick, and Connie Wang (Refinery29) will award teams prizes for shiniest costume, best use of recycled materials, and more!

 

The day will conclude with a garden party at Smiling Hogshead Ranch for our marchers and supporters, featuring the Center for Holographic Arts behind the grill, and DJ Vinyl Richie and DJ SEAARCH.

                             How to participate:

1) Walk with us! Pick a team to join, or email Flux-a-thon@fluxfactory.org to get paired up!

2) Party with us! Join us for a Garden Party & BBQ at Smiling Hogshead Ranch. Donate $20 to your favorite team for entry.

3) Donate! If you can't attend the Flux-a-thon or after-party, donate to the team you want to win!

                            What Do You Get?
