Want to build a massive Rangoli?

Then join us at Diwali Downtown on Sunday November 7th at The Roundhouse.

VCD 2010 is very excited by this new twist on one of the more popular components of our festival. Rangolis are colorful floor mosaics that are created by laying out colored materials (feathers, lentils, rice, sand) in intricate patterns. In the past, we have used skilled artists to create a small rangoli that was left as a closed display for the audience. This year, we will use an entire room where the audience will build a massive 40-foot by 30-foot rangoli, one bucketful at a time!

Artist Whitney Krueger (www.whitneykrueger.com) has been commissioned to design and create this one-of-a-kind work of art, which will only last until the end of the day! To preserve it, the entire construction will be filmed from above. And apparently, we’re not the first to come up with this idea.

Watch a massive rangoli get built!

Hope to see you at The Rondhouse!
