You don't have to wait for the festival to get involved. Sign up for the Unleash Your Inner Artist event at Wooly Mammoth Theatre. Also free, but you need to register.
Impressed by the open nature of the Figment DC Festival, Tim & Jelly introduce Rebecca to cheese sculptor, Kip Formaggio. We met Kip after hearing about him being expelled from several art shows for praying to and then eating, his prized creation, Baby Cheesus. He also received criticism for his Gouda Buddha, Mormonzola and his Blue Jew sculpture inspired by Woody Allen. Thanks to Rebecca brainstorming with him, It sounds like Kip will be welcomed at Figment DC. Look for Kip's Roquefort Forts for Military families at the festival!
