Posted By on Fri, Apr 20, 2012 at 11:34 AM


Last year, the Green Box Arts Festival hosted Jason Hackenwerth and the Keigwin + Company dance group in Green Mountain Falls. They were the subjects of this cover story, which also mentioned how Kirkpatrick Oil CompanyKirkpatrick Family Fund came to fund the festival.

This year, Olafur Eliasson of Germany will build an installation with halogen bulbs, steel stands and a fog machine "to create a floating cube" in the Sallie Bush Community Building in the new Green Box Workshop (formerly the Falls Motel), for display between June 21-23, Kirkpatrick's Ross Powell writes via e-mail. Artist and designer Ben Roth will use dead trees from the area to make a statue, he adds.

Other performers include "world renowned fiddle sensation" Kyle Dillingham, who will play June 30, the Oklahoma City Ballet, who will perform June 25, and the Keigwin company on June 29.

Other Green Box events include classes, such as a youth theater workshop, creative writing, floral arrangement and more are available online. There's even a peek at the 2013 festival artist, so mark your calendars.
