In another addition to Wicker Park Fest, we're announcing two new arts additions showing unique and inspired works from Redmoon Theater and Defibrillator Gallery. Redmoon is presenting a piece called The Sonic Boom, a massive battery powered hydraulic vehicle, sculpture, and DJ performance platform. Defibrillator is presenting a series of large-scale moving inflatable sculptures by six local artists that will be installed each day of the festival. Artists include Claire Ashley, Marianne Kim, Helmut Heiss and three mystery artists. [Racked Inbox] Image: Paul Germanos
