The fifth installment of the much anticipated Kulture Klash Arts Festival is just around the corner. Here's what you can expect:

50+ artists on display
: Massive amounts of art including canvas, wood, metal, sculpture, fabric, photos, acrylic, bike parts, recycled cardboard, lights, video installations, sand, stuffed animals, glue, nails, found objects, graffiti, collage, print making and so much more then we could ever put down on paper.

Live painting collaboration: A 4 x 30+ foot wall painted live by roughly 15 artists during the 6 hour course of Kulture Klash. Come watch how the artists collaborate, collude and interact, stepping on each others toes and conversely bolstering this massive work. Individual slices of the painting will be fore sale.

'Starving Artists" show: The show is exactly as it's named. We have 8 Artists, who will be starving themselves (only water/herbal teas) in the event space for 5 days, in order to see how starvation really effects their craft. During the course of the 5 days, each artist is require to create one painting per day. Each artist's paintings must be the same size, medium, subject matter, and degree of difficulty as the day before. This way the spectator can see the difference. Will the artwork suffer? Or does the elimination of food, alcohol, sugar, refine their talents?

Improv spoken word side stage
: This will be a side room complete with couches and a small stage were we are encouraging audience participation, poems on the fly and poetry "battles" for those who are up to the challenge. Hosted by local word master and poem celebrity Markus Amaker. The Starving Artist exhibit will be on display in the background.

Chain Ring Circus: Celebrate the art of cycling with bike polo matches, bike dancing, slow bike races, bike art, bike movies and general bike enthusiasm. We encourage cyclist to pedal to the event and enjoy the free bike valet hosted by Holy City Bike Co-op.

Photo repository depot by Sully Sullivan: Weird props, backdrops and cut outs. Make some memories because you can even purchase your photo as a souvenir.

"Hand of Character" booth hosted by Pure Theatre: Rodney Lee Rogers directs a interactive character play incorporating the audience as key players.

The infamous midnight room: Just have to wait and see...

Modern dance - The Power Company will be performing two separate dance pieces choreographed by Marcy Jo Yonkey-Clayton. They will be dabbling with the curiosity of watching and being watched plus a second performance about pushing the boundaries of property lines and personal space.

Live music: Dante's Camaro - "Rising up from the ashes comes the fastest, dirtiest, most maniacal menagerie or mangled metal the world has yet known!! Riding down the highway to HELL and destroying every bottle of booze in its path, the band that no one wanted to cross will not disappoint."
