For their Alter: Pop-Up pARTy work for Art in the Loop, Boi Boy and Bo have created an interactive art installation seeking to actively engage streetcar riders on their way home from work. Shake off a mundane work day with a spontaneous and inclusive dance party! If you’re not a dancer, stay and watch performances by local, eclectic artists. This exploration of nightlife during the afternoon encourages riders to interact with their neighbor, break down social barriers, and start the weekend of with a fun, relaxing and positive experience. Alter Art just wants to have fun.
