Global Artists Flock To Austin For 12 Day Festival

Updated: Tuesday, April 22 2014, 09:30 AM CDT

Artists from around the globe are in Austin for the 10th Annual Fusebox Festival. It takes place over 12 days in venues across the city.

Fusebox is a hybrid arts festival that showcases art in theatre, dance, film, music, and literature, visual and culinary arts 

Many of the events are free including two installations you can find at City Hall in Downtown Austin.

Recycled Sounds is a project created by Steve Parker and Jeb Lewis. The project uses recycled items like old doors and PVC pipes to create musical instruments. Parker and Lewis told KEYE instruments have been made out of discarded materials for centuries. You can play some of these instruments in the City Hall Parking garage at 301 W. 2nd Street for the next month.

Textile artists Monika Jakubiak of Warsaw, Poland and Rebecca Layton of Austin have also created a performance piece they're calling Sewn on the Street. They invite the public to their pop-up sweatshop and to sit down at a sewing machine and make clothes. The artists say they're not looking to enact change, but with every stitch they hope the public realizes the amount of time that went into making that garment and how little the sweatshop worker, who made it, took home.

You can see Sewn on the Street on April 24 from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm at Austin City Hall.
