Flux-a-Thon 2017 Parade Teams
Flux Artists-in-Residence and community members will compete for glory in our parade that leads from Flux Factory through the LIC streets to the LICArtists Plaxall Gallery, where we'll bestow honors on the teams with trophies by Kim Couchot, dine & drink on the water, watch performers and dance to DJs!

Team Paper Trail
We are what we document. Paper shuffles life around, guaranteeing, insuring, exchanging, governing! With paper people sell stars, debt, sponges, places. We are what we document. Identities can be stolen, we are paper cyborgs. Escape the paperwork framework. Make you paper work for you.
Join Flux Managing Director Maya Suess, Flux Board of Directors Co-Chair Sally Szwed, and team members Jesse Gammage, Haiba Hamilton, Lorraine Glover, Hadi Nasiri, Mara Kravitz, Macon Reed and Tara Foster, to raise some paper for Flux Factory.

Come along, dance and prance in a scatological promenade with artists Christina
Freeman, Cayla Lockwood, Moira Williams and friendly microflora William Burns, Toddy and Aaron, working together and keeping our microbeme and probiotic dissident interventions regular for all!
Yup, we are the shit! You can be too, just dump a healthy microbial load our way and
positively support Flux Factory - vivez notre microbème!
