  • Description:

    Started in 2007 as a collaboration between University of Michigan Lloyd Hall Scholars Program students and Ann Arbor community members, FestiFools was designed to celebrate the collective imagination of people working together to advance the premise that embracing our ingenuity and exposing ourselves to the collective art-making process just might be good for us. (Letting go of our serious side for a bit and embracing our inner Fool might not be such a bad idea either.) The resulting kaleidoscope of large-scale, three-dimensional, kinetic puppet-esque creations takes over the city streets, overwhelms our senses, and reminds us that it is primarily our unique capacity for innovation that sets us apart as individuals, and our creative accomplishments that bring us together as a community.

    In 2012 WonderFool Productions, the producers of FestiFools and FoolMoon, was founded as a separate nonprofit organization, with a mission to engage communities in dynamic, educational, collaborative, and entertaining public art experiences.
