Jackson Hole Public Art will host its annual “big idea” MoonShot 5X5 event streaming LIVE on Thursday, January 28 from 7-8pm from the Center for the Arts. MC Jeff Moran will once again lead the evening, during which five local creatives will present their boldest, most ambitious public art ideas with 5 slides in 5 minutes. These concepts are meant to be catalysts to change the way people view a topic or understand an issue through public art. MoonShot 5x5 is now in its 5th year, produced by JH Public Art and co-presented by the Center for the Arts, but this year is the first time that it will be streamed live during a full moon and on National Kazoo Day! Viewers will be able to watch the event live from the Center for the Arts’ event webpage. This year’s presenters are: Borbay (Exquisite Corpse Jackson Hole), Fernando Jáuregui (Street Gallery JH), Kika MacFarlane (Wonderment), Suzanne Morlock (Textile Mountain), and Tenley Thompson (Tree Time). They were tasked with submitting ideas that address any issue facing our community, inspiring hope through art. These are not necessarily shovel-ready projects, but rather bright ideas that push the boundary of what is possible. The evening is sponsored by the Center for the Arts, Friends of JH Public Art, Toran Accounting, and Wyoming Arts Council. The “Buzz Aldrin Award” has increased to $1,000 this year, and will be voted on via text for the idea that best fits the “ethos” of Jackson Hole and is the winning crowd pleaser. Instructions on how to vote will be available during the livestream presentation, which is free and open to all via the Center for the Art’s webpage, and each voting attendee will be eligible to win one of three Raffle Prizes. The event serves as a launchpad to rocket ideas out into the universe, where we hope they will land in reality. Previous years’ MoonShots that have become community projects include GlowNights (a current project with installations in both Jackson and Teton Village) and last year’s Cloud Factory by Jackson-based artist Jenny Dowd.
