Clockshop’s The Bowtie Project

First off, if you aren’t familiar with Clockshop, I would advise that you get acquainted… perhaps this Saturday during the annual Frogtown Artwalk where they will be hosting a performance by Timur Bekbosunov as part of their Bowtie Project series.  Clockshop is a super smart and progressive arts & culture non-profit based in Atwater.  They produce films and projects to support artists, writers and civic leaders.  Their Bowtie Project is a collaboration between Clockshop and California State Parks to activate a 19-acre post-industrial lot known as The Bowtie, located along the LA River in Northeast Los Angeles. The site is owned by CA State parks since 2003 and has been closed to the public for over a decade.  Through the course of their Botwie series, Clockshop  will bring artists’ projects and collaborations to this overlooked piece of land.

This weekend vocalist Timur Bekbosunov will perform a capella songs and arias by Purcell, Britten, Donizetti, Ligeti, Rosenboom, Kozin and Prokofiev in English, Italian, Russian and Kazakh at the neglected Round House structure at the southern-most tip of the Bowtie Project.  Guests will meet on the Bowtie Project at the foot of The Unfinished at 5:30pm and walk together along the river to the Round House.

Go early or stay later to take in the sights of the Frogtown Art Walk.
