Aeolian Day: Music Made by the Wind? 

Sat., May 17 2014
Aeolian Day is a free community festival that will exhibit and celebrate musical instruments that are played by the wind made by a collaboration of local artists and Oakland elementary schools.

•Interact with wind instruments by four artist commissioned by Thingamajigs with support from over 50 donors matching a grant from the East Bay Fund for Artists
•See special installations of wind-infused instruments by Ranjit Bhatnagar, Don Gottwald, Stephan Haluska, and Tom Nunn
•Learn about the art, science and culture of the wind and Middle Harbor at the ephemeral reading room in The Prelinger Library

The festival fosters creative collaborations between artists, students and teachers; and promotes awareness of Middle Harbor Shoreline itself, with its unique history, habitat and design. In addition to the four wind-powered works at the center of Aeolian Day, the festival will feature live music, food trucks, and hands-on learning for families.
