Bring your own Fabulous Fantasy Picnic blanket, basket, and elegant dinner to celebrate your creative flair! We’re also holding a Creative Hat Contest—let art go to your head by creating a one of a kind hat for the event!
Hats will be judged by hosts, Karen Suen-Cooper and Martin Cooper, who will present awards in the following categories: “Inspired by Nature,” “Inspired by Architecture,” “Inspired by Film or Literature,” “Inspired by Music,” “Inspired by Art Omi,” and “Crowd Favorite.” Winners will be featured on Art Omi’s Instagram seen by 30K followers, and will receive a professional portrait wearing your winning hat.
Composer Phil Kline will round off the evening with the world premiere of his time-based installation, last words before disappearing from the face of the earth. Written explicitly to be presented in a quiet meadow in 2001, Kline has not publicly performed the piece until now, hoping to find a venue that suited his vision. He at last found the perfect location while walking through the fields at Art Omi.
