Looking for something to sweeten up your weekend? Look no further. Flux Factory—a collective in LIC dedicated to nurturing up-and-coming artists—is hosting a fabulous, interactive ice cream installation this weekend. Here’s a little blurb from their event page that explains exactly what kind of fun you’ll be in for if you head over to Flux Factory’s Good Humor event.
“Come for the art, stay for the ice cream….or is it the other way around? Create your own plaster ice cream sculpture to last the ages. Scoop, squeeze, and serve plaster mixed with dye, paint, glitter, marbles and other ‘toppings’ at the sculpture station. Add your vision to the installation, or take it home to display your sculptural prowess (for future generations, of course). Take a ‘turn’ cranking the old-fashioned ice cream machine as we serve up new flavors on the hour. Classic and experimental approaches to flavoring need taste buds! Engage in the collaborative process, learn new techniques, and add your expertise to the social environment.”
Oh also did I mention there will be a comedy show, a dj, and of course actual ice cream? At Good Humor you’re sure to have a day of good laughs, fun music, and a satisfied sweet tooth.
