Solstice Celebration 2012

Free

Bring your friends and family to Socrates’ annual Solstice event to welcome the summer and celebrate the longest day of the year! Be creative in solstice art-making workshops presented in partnership with Free Style Arts Association, IOBY, Materials for the Arts, The Noguchi Museum, and Queens Museum of Art; get your face painted by Agostino Arts; participate in a special solstice ritual performed by Urban Shaman Mama Donna; have a picnic; and enjoy the view as the sun sets over the Manhattan skyline!

Once again featuring Silent Storm Sound System’s silent disco – a unique way of experiencing music! To learn more, visit www.silentdis.co. Guests wear wireless headphones as a silent atmosphere is transformed into a high-energy dance party.

As a part of Civic Action, sneak in a full body workout and help keep Socrates green with artist Natalie Jeremijenko’s X Fitness Hula Hoops, which will scatter seeds throughout the Park; and then reward yourself with delicious food from local restaurants served in artist Rirkrit Tiravanija’s outdoor installation.
