This year at Maker Faire Orlando 2016, we’re adding something a little different. We want to give everyone, makers and attendees alike, the chance to be part of a collaborative art project.

We will have a large “Welcome Arch” located at the entryway to the event. The arch will start empty – and we need you to fill it with your amazing-ness. It can be an object you have made, created, drawn, sewn, re-purposed, or designed in any way, and hang it up on the arch with the use of zip ties. If you make something at the event, you can add it! We need to return the arch on Monday, so please don’t use any adhesives. The arch will be up all weekend for people to come and add their unique touches, and at the end of the weekend, we will collect all the items that were added to the arch, and turn it into one large, community made, art piece.

This project is to encourage makers of all styles, ages, backgrounds, and lifestyles to show off what they make and do, and to bring everyone in the community together in a new and exciting way. So bring your stuff with you to the event to share with the world and add to our big, amazing, inspiring, community made, group art project.
