'Robbing the Bank' returns to Mass Ave.

Art is being created during the “Robbing the Bank” Bohemian Art Festival 3-6 p.m. Oct. 5 at the Art Bank, 811 Massachusetts Ave. More than 30 artists with either exhibit or create art during the family-friendly indoor/outdoor event.

Luke Austin Daugherty is the anchor performing artist for “Music as Art” and will perform with his jam band from 4-5 p.m. and let other musicians join in. Daugherty is also the co-founder of and named this bohemian-style event, which began in 2008. It combines performing and visual art forms along with poetry and literature for a sharing (or “robbing”) of ideas between artists to create new art as you watch and/or participate.

During this grassroots event there will be “Dancing as Art” produced by artist Jenna Mishelow. Anyone can join in by dipping their feet in paint and dancing on a canvas during the 4-5 p.m. segment. Guardrails will be painted by anyone interested between 5-6 p.m. as part of this permanent outdoor art exhibit in the parking lot of the Art Bank. This segment will be produced by artist Barbara Heywood-Chasey. Poets will be presenting spoken word during “Poetry as Art” for selected works of art by Art Bank artists Joy Hernandez, Andrew Koeling, and others. This segment will be produced by poet Jennifer Lemming. Ashleigh Antle will be the event emcee and Reggie Strong with StrongSound will provide sound. Other artists creating art that day will be Rachel Illingworth, Cheri Herron, John Muncy, Leo Ware, Gant Haverstick, and more.

The John Dillinger family (Dillinger’s nephews — Mike and Travis Thompson) will be presenting and answering questions from 3-4 p.m. and a book signing will take place by author Carol Sissom for her book Banking with Dillinger. (Note: Dillinger allegedly robbed the bank that was originally in the Art Bank building during the 1930s.) A costume contest will also take place during the festival. Guests may dress up as John Dillinger or the “Lady in Red.”
