Free City 2014 returns to Chevy Commons for its second annual public event on August 22 – 23. This two-day festival of art, design and technology opens up the former industrial site for emergent uses in art, design, new media, and community engagement. Expanding to the greater downtown area, Free City 2014 invites a rapidly changing city to be visually transformed through a variety of new media, technology, light, sound, performance, and architecture. The festival highlights the use of novel social and material practices to re-purpose vacant and underutilized spaces. Open to artists, architects, designers, engineers, and students, regionally and internationally. Select projects will receive awards through a juried process. Download PDF.
