A Midsummer ArtRaiser 2017

Celebrating the SUN and ALL of its artful creations...

June 24th

Mark your calendar for this year's ArtRaiser, June 24th, to support the Sprinkler Factory's mission to serve the Worcester Arts Community! 

Over the past year, the Sprinkler Factory has welcomed thousands of visitors through its doors to view the works of hundreds of local artists, we have hosted continuous theater performances, welcomed musicians for concerts and dances. Audiences have enjoyed film screenings, poetry and literary events, vendor days and book fairs. The Sprinkler Factory has also been used for a wide variety of artist talks, workshops, lectures and demonstrations. We have been a fundraising venue for other area nonprofits, and have generated many thousands of dollars for important work being done in the community. 

Please join us June 24th to help us keep the momentum going, and to keep The Sprinkler Factory alive as a vital component of the greater Worcester community. The main feature of this years ArtRaiser will be a silent auction of original works of art generously donated by accomplished Worcester area artists. 

Buy art! Support community! Have fun at a great party! See you there!

Calling aspiring fashionistas for the Pagan Fashion Show, as a part of the 2017 Midsummer ArtRaiser, June 24th at The Sprinkler Factory Gallery. 

Midsummer celebrations take place around the world in the days nearing the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. 

Midsummer is one of the most important, symbolic and festive times for many traditions of pre-Christian origin.

For the Midsummer ArtRaiser we aim to capture the spirit of these midsummer festivities by "Celebrating the SUN and ALL of its artful creations".

Envision capturing the look and feel of these elegant and ritualist ancient cultures for the "Pagan Fashion Show". 

Designers to recruit and work with models or model their own creations. 

Limit 3 models per designer. 

Rather than a traditional runway fashion show, models are asked to move in and out of the crowd in a performance art / human sculpture type fashion or simply mingle in style.
