Mixed Me­dia Baca Street throws a party

Pasatiempo - - CONTENTS -

The pos­i­tive re­sponse to last sum­mer’s Baca Street Bash was such that the or­ga­niz­ers de­cided to do it again. Par­tic­i­pants in the sec­ond an­nual bash, which takes place at 5 p.m. on Satur­day, July 23, in­clude Molecule De­sign, Santa Fe Mod­ern, Art.i.fact Con­sign­ment, Baca Art Projects, and other busi­nesses and gal­leries in the Baca Street Art Dis­trict. The event in­cludes live en­ter­tain­ment, art demon­stra­tions, spe­cial sales, and ex­hi­bi­tions. Axle Con­tem­po­rary’s mo­bile art van, with its cur­rent ex­hibit Ac­ci­den­tal

Pho­tog­ra­phy, will be parked in front of Gray Mat­ter Art and Ar­ti­facts (926 Baca St. #6), which cur­rently shows artist Jay Tincher’s Skullp­ture Se­ries: Beauch­ene and Ex­ploded Skulls. ART.i.fac­tory, the art space in­side Art.i.fact (930-C Baca St.), shows Dis­patch. For this in­stal­la­tion, lo­cal col­lec­tives Strangers and SCUBA in­vited more than 90 lo­cal artists to cre­ate 3-by-6-inch tiles for a grid rep­re­sent­ing Santa Fe’s art scene. The open­ing re­cep­tions for Dis­patch and Skullp­ture Se­ries co­in­cide with the Baca Street Bash.

Other at­trac­tions in­clude art-mak­ing ac­tiv­i­ties, a bon­fire, games for kids, and raf­fles.
