The City Of Santa Clarita Officials Present Art Slam In Old Town Newhall

The City of Santa Clarita presents Art Slam, original events inspired by sound that showcases eclectic unique sounds from multiple genres such as folk rock, Caribbean drumming and jazz. 

Art Slam is a wide variety of free interactive art showcases and experiences featuring a diverse set of local artists on a monthly basis.  This month, Art Slam will showcase multi-instrumentalists, live sound effect demonstrations, a sonic showman, drumming and electronic installatons, a silent disco, and much more.

“We started Art slam as a part of Thursdays at Newhall. What separates this event from typical art events is that we wanted to extend the notion of art beyond a picture of art in a gallery.  Art can come in the form of sound and light and interactive experiences,” said City of Santa Clarita communications specialist Heather Sumagaysay.

“Art slam is an experience that the attendee could access art through touch, or what they feel or hear,” according to her statement. 

It will feature: 

Multi-instrumentalist and Songwriter Adjoa Skiller

Electronic Instrumentalist Franz  Keller

Sonic Showman Tony “Sparx Palermo,”

Bucket Drum Circle

Professor Wes Weasely and the Strolling Theremin will be available to  make your own music

Video Jockey David Cabrerra

Unique Folk Trio Alex Davis & the Ary Sisters

Rob Ray, who makes site- specific installations, wondrous public games, and experimental videos

Colin Honigman & Andrew Walton will present an interactive immersion installation. 

It is a free series a part of the monthly Thursdays At Newhall event. It is on Thursday, June 6 from 7pm to 11 pm at Lyons Avenue & Main Street in Old Town Newhall.
