This year’s absurdist, artful Wooly Fair is promising Providence the moon.
In its seventh year running, Wooly Fair has crafted a space station made from 21 pods shaped like “some cross between a flying saucer and a circus tent,” as one paper describes it. Each will as a booth for an artist, designer, or creative type.
The July 30 festival defies description. Even the local paper or record couldn’t do it. “Is it an art exhibit with live music? A music festival with an artsy side? A 1960s-style Happening retooled for the iPhone Age? A Rocky Point for hip young urbanites?” mused the Providence Journal.
If they can’t describe it, don’t expect me to.
