Solstice at Barbacoa
5 – 9 PM
Join us in celebrating another Solstice at Barbacoa with architect Craig Shillitto, and collaborators Katie Merz and Curt Gobrecht. This installation, aligned with the solstice sunset, will host an evening of food and music as we watch the sun set on the longest day of the year. This free community tasting gives attendees a rare opportunity to enjoy the park on the cusp of nightfall!
Food and beverage inspired by pre-Columbian and post-Columbian recipes will be served. The central pit fire will be used for a whole pig provided by Lovers Leap Farm and cooked in “Baracoa” style all day, served beginning at 5 p.m.
Prismatic by Hou de Sousa will be illuminated at dusk on June 22 during Solstice at Barbacoa—come experience the work in its luminous glory!
Barbacoa was created by architect Craig Shillitto, with collaborators Bobby Palombo, Katie Merz, Mateo Fernandez-Muro and Pete Lipson.
