Watkins Artists Featured in OZ Pod Installation, June 21-25

June 17, 2016

One of the summer’s most anticipated arts events is the Modular Art Pods installation at Oz Arts, June 21-25 — and more than a dozen Watkins talents are participating.

Curated by Tony Youngblood, MAPs (first presented in a one-night collaboration in 2015), allow artists to create individual “pod galleries” of various sizes.  In addition to the interactivity inherent within each pod, audiences will be given multiple opportunities to “choose their own adventure” within the journey through dozens of unique pods, each designed and constructed by a different artist or collective.

Tony Youngblood’s Modular Art Pods are part of the Oz Arts Festival.
