Aimee Brown is looking at our beloved Point Pleasant Park much closer than your average dog-walking, marathon-training, park enthusiast. The interdisciplinary visual artist and research buff has been digging deep into history and "using the park as a little microcosm for performance action" as the artist in residence at the Park's Gatekeeper's Lodge since January. The Holy Well Excursion is the third in a series of performance/participation outings that Brown has organized. She'll head the hour-long search for the Holy Well, which she discovered through archaeological reports done after Hurricane Juan did its damage to the once lush green space. In what she calls a combination of survival and salvation theory, Brown will set out to find what's apparently the only source of potable water in the south end that hasn't been treated by the city. Quench your creative and curious thirst by joining in and learning more about what Brown has uncovered in her research.

April 10, Point Pleasant Park, Point Pleasant Drive (meet at the Gatekeeper's Lodge), 2pm, gatekeeperslodge.blogspot.com
