Three world-renowned street artists  – Sonic Bad, MasPaz & Phetus – each used their own distinctive styles to collaborate on metamorphosing the back walls of the Huntington Arts Council into a vibrant vast work of art, during SPARKBOOM’s “Off the Walls” art Block Party, on August 24, 2013.

Members of Friends of Tackapausha and seasonal and part-time employees and volunteers at Tackapausha walked around animal residents, such as Zouzi the corn snake and Maple the Rabbit.

And children and adults were actively engaged in the science projects, such as creating green slime in the museum, and shooting off water bottle rockets outdoors.

Commemorating the 44th Anniversary of the 1969 First Moon Landing, the successful event also featured moon art and performances by Long Island artists, presented by Long Island Fringe Festival 5.
