IX Art Park will present Raising the Rusty Iris, an art party for the whole family, from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday. Visitors can take part in creating the Rusty Iris art bus by helping to paint the vehicle as if it were a paint-by-numbers coloring book.

There will be music by Charlottesville DJs Noogenesis, BabyFace Killah and Iluvu. Bad Hat Fire a Charlottesville fire performance troupe, will be there. Look for bellydancers, stiltwalkers, jugglers and other performers.

It’s a chance to learn more about the Rusty Iris cohort of artists, performers, computer techs, mechanics, entrepreneurs and engineers and the ways in which their cooperation and collaboration help create art in many forms. Learn more at TheRustyIris.com.
