PASEO ARTS 
FESTIVAL 
HAPPENS
RAIN OR SHINE
(OR GREMLINS)


The Paseo Arts District’s 39th annual Paseo Arts Festival will take place May 23 and 24 from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. and May 25 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.  Visitors will enjoy 86 visual artists, who will fill the Historic Paseo Arts District with original artwork: everything from painting, ceramics and photography to woodworking, sculpture and jewelry.

The Festival is also famous for its dozens of musicians and live performers. New this year is the addition of a third stage. Lovers of the culinary arts rejoice! The food court will feature 12 food vendors with traditional and not-so-traditional festival treats, both savory and sweet. Think gyros, Asian food, decadent desserts and great beers from Mustang Brewery in the new Mustang Brewery Beer Garden. The children's area allows future artists to explore the arts and have fun while creating.
Shudder at the thought of parking? Why not shuttle instead? The Paseo Express, a shuttle bus, will run every 15 minutes to the parking lot at First Christian Church at NW 36th and Walker, making it beyond easy to park and ride. Shuttle hours are 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. May 23 and 24 and from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. May 25.

The Paseo Arts Festival draws more than 60,000 people who come to enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of this annual Oklahoma City tradition. It is also the Paseo Arts Association’s largest fundraiser, enabling the Association to offer arts events in the Paseo year-round. Paseo, Oklahoma City’s historic arts district is OKC’s unique arts destination. Dozens of galleries, restaurants and shops stand in distinctive Spanish Mission Revival style buildings, all within walking distance. The Paseo Arts District is located between Northwest 30th and 27th Streets and Walker and Hudson.

Commentary
PERPETUAL MOTION'S
FAULT LINE 
MESMERIZING

Fault Line, performed Saturday night, by Perpetual Motion Dance to a full house, was a 
mesmerizing work of a mature modern and aerial dance company. 

The performance long work was a deeply involving combination of modern and aerial dance, the 
films of K. Edward Van Osdol, and the electronic music led off by a Kandling Ray selection.
The aerial work included single and double harnesses, a horizontal ladder, and the silks, as
the company continues to find more ways to work with and break from gravity.

The choreographers were director Michelle Moeller, Stephanie Crosby, Kayla Jenkins, Kim Kieffer, 
Amy Nevius, Katie Noble, Summer Peppler and artist in residence Amy Querin of Fresno Dance
Collective.

As Moeller pointed out, the company was awarded a Mid-America Alliance grant for its creation,
one of only three in Oklahoma.

The final performance is at 2 p.m. today, Sunday, May 17th at the Contemporary Arts 
Center.

FAULT LINE RUN
BY PERPETUAL
MOTION STARTS
TOMORROW





Perpetual Motion Dance is currently creating an original concert of modern and aerial dance entitled Fault Line in collaboration with filmmaker Kyle Van Odsol that will feature the company's signature blend of stunning visuals and technical ingenuity. The concert will take place May 15th-16th 8:00pm and May 17th 2:00pm at the Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center.  Fault Line will explore the metaphor of seismic shifts by creating an eight by eight foot wall of boxes that will be deconstructed into multiple platforms. Kyle Van Osdol will integrate 3-D projection mapping onto these platforms, reflecting the seismic activity occurring below our feet. Aerial apparatuses such as a horizontal ladder and harnesses will lift the performance off the ground and into the air. The choreography for Fault Line will be created by director Michelle Moeller, company choreographers Stephanie Crosby, Kayla Jenkins, and Amy Nevius and artist in residence Amy Querin of Fresno Dance Collective.

Through state appropriations and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Oklahoma Arts Council funds over 1,200 events annually with an estimated total attendance of over 3.5 million. Projects funded by the Oklahoma Arts Council generally account for over $20 million in grants and matching funds distributed throughout Oklahoma's economy throughout the state's rural and urban communities.
