How does it feel to touch the sky? Slippery Rock University (SRU) Art and Dance present colorful imaginings of dancers drifting aloft on Pride of Baltimore II. Join us for a weekend art exhibition and delight in the magical interpretation of dancing painted figures (on recycled sailcloth) floating above the horizon while live dancers interpret interactive movements on deck.
Several artists have teamed up to share their talents aboard Pride II. The vessel provides a dream-like visceral experience to host a combination of art and dance. The outdoor setting is opening and expanding for sharing the sailcloth art and actualizing the encompassing movement of dance on deck.
The Sailcloth Art Project is an interdisciplinary approach interweaving art, science, dance, music, poetry, and sailing. If you attended Tall Ships Erie in 2016, you may have seen the exhibit at the Bayfront Maritime Center. There are a lot of new pieces that have been created just for this special exhibit on Pride II!
