5-7pm inside Arts Incubator, 108 E. Congress
7pm-? outside the former McLellan’s Department Store, 63 E. Congress (corner of Scott Ave. and Congress)

proj•ect is a live interactive art event in which participants from the general public of all ages are invited to draw their ideas for buildings in downtown Tucson, Arizona on an overhead projector. For one night only, Pop Up Spaces will host two stations of overhead projectors lighting up interior and exterior spaces where viewers may draw architectural details for facades, walls decorations, furniture and fixtures for shops, restaurants, offices, living spaces, working spaces, cultural spaces, play spaces — anything and everything imaginable. Hosted by Tu Scene art blog founder/editor and Pop Up Spaces co-founder Rachelle Díaz, proj•ect will also explore the issues of transience so often seen downtown in terms of space occupation and turnover by erasing the drawings when the participant(s) have completed them and starting fresh when a new concept from a different person.

proj•ect will be a stop on the Tucson Tweet Crawl (RT) and part of the 4th Avenue Underpass Grand Re-Opening and Happy Birthday, Tucson! festivities. Special thanks to Kimi Eisele, Rhythm Industry Performace Factory and Dinnerware Artspace. For more information, contact Rachelle Díaz at info@popupspaces.org.
