Presented by Boynton Beach's ActivistArtistA, the third annual KeroWACKED Multimedia Festival is an all-day outdoor celebration of art, music, dance and poetry.
Inspired by the "love festivals" of the BEAT Generation, KeroWACKED will featured artists in all media from around South Florida who come together once a year to create an unforgettable experience for the tri-county community.
Two stages and three performance areas will feature workshops, chalk painting, art exhibitions, live painting, poetry/book readings, and lots of music.
The Beat Generation Art Exhibition will feature works by Guillermo Manrique, Dana Donaty, Rolando Chang Barrero, Craig McInnis, Jason Flurant, Joseph Reily, and many more, and was inspired by the post-World War II writers who came to prominence in the 1950s, as well as the cultural phenomena that they both documented and inspired. Central elements of "Beat" culture included rejection of received standards, innovations in style, experimentation with drugs, alternative sexualities, an interest in Eastern religion, a rejection of materialism, and explicit portrayals of the human condition.
