The Frist Center for The Visual Arts in Nashville has also come on board as a partner to do a special activity in the children’s area. Kids will get to create sound bracelets that are inspired by the soundsuits of visual artist Nick Cave, who’s exhibition will be on display at the Frist Center this fall. Materials include bells, pony beads, and glow-in-the-dark elements. The wearable artworks will produce sound and glow when children dance in the final hours of the festival after sunset.
