KeroWACKED: A Homage to Jack
Sunday, February 25, 2012
Trying to describe the energy that permeates inside ActivistArtistA, a decently seized yet petite art enclave in Boynton Beach, proves tough, mostly because describing a vibe always is.
For the pagans and Buddhists, they feel refreshed just by feeling the wind. Others have to be dunked into water or sit in a box to feel cleansed of their sins. But the new art walk up at the District is managing to pull this righteous cleansing off all by itself. All you have to do is walk inside the place.
Once inside the confines, the familial ties between the artists and the connectedness of this community wakes up your spirit.
This Sunday, ActivistArtistA hosted the "KeroWACKED: A Homage to Jack" festival
that ran all day and had everything, like car-painting, craft-selling, live painting, live music from both bands and solo
artists, and even live DJs -- all this went on at the same time. You couldn't
turn and not be immersed in something artistically related.
Although none of the artwork, besides a piece or two, was Kerouac-themed, more important, this festival dedicated to Kerouac captured his spirit. And he's a man to love.
