The web site for Artica 2009 describes it as "A Time Travelers’ Homecoming, A Winter Solstice Celebration." It is an annual celebration of the shortest day by outsider artists, located in the post-industrial wastelands a kilometer or two north of the Arch. This year's edition had oddball art (or artish) installations, a half hour performance of an historic Dada poem and music all around. The temperature was barely above freezing. What a bad day to play guitar outdoors! This group is called Fire Dog. My fire had gone cold by the time I took these.

I got a lot of good shots at Artica, enough to feed the monster for days. There's a set on Flickr I'll add to over the coming days here.
