SkowheganPERFORMS 2017
Saturday, October 14 // 2–5PM
Socrates Sculpture Park // map

Skowhegan, in conjunction with Socrates Sculpture park is pleased to announce SkowheganPERFORMS, which will take place Saturday, October 14th, from 2-5PM

This year's SkowheganPERFORMS will take the loose form of a fall concert. The performances abstractly consider that specific atmosphere, acoustics, architecture, art, audience and mood. 

The annual day of performance, now in its seventh iteration, will take place alongside the exhibition The Socrates Annual, as well as Queens Food Day

Performances are one moment or ongoing, take place at specific locations or throughout the entire park, and necessitate various levels of participation from audience members and sculptures currently on view in The Socrates Annual.
