Come to Shake Outttttt 3: The Sea Giveth, The Sea Taketh Away on Saturday, July 24!! Curated by Olivia Wyatt, Jessica Shaefer, Shaun Kessler, and Patrick Walsh, it will be an all-day event of art, music, performance and food at Marina 59, located on Jamaica Bay in Far Rockaway.

As part of the show, approximately thirty young New York-based artists were asked to create site-specific works within the marina. Some of the works include old, junked boats that are being painted and transformed into various art installations: among these, the boat Obsession will act as an instrument/recording studio for the band Messages, and a houseboat is being transformed into a haunted house, another into a video projection room with upstairs ‘disco lounge.’ (The houseboats will eventually be renovated and turned into bed and breakfast accommodation at the marina). A live feed using a hydrophone will amplify the natural sounds of the bay. An interactive sound sculpture will be placed upon a floating dock; painted yoga mats will be available for use in conjunction with an original musical composition…and much, much more.

DJs Taka and Shay High will provide a soundtrack to the event during the day and around sunset there will be a live music performance by percussive post-punk Brooklyn trio Lemonade There will be five two-person kayaks and five four-person motorboats available for hourly rental. The marina has also placed a swimming dock in the middle of the bay, so that as swimmers or boaters approach the dock, they will be able to experience floating sculptures along the way. Local favorites Rockaway Taco, Roberta’s Pizza, Veggie Island, and DiCosmo’s Italian Ice will provide food and refreshments for sale, with bar and alcohol on offer from Zablozki's Bar. Rockaway Ferry will provide water taxi service to the event from Pier 11 at Wall Street in Manhattan at 11:45am as part of its regular route to Riis Park. Visitors can also take the A train to 60th Street in Far Rockaway.

Participating artists include: Rebecca Adorno, Sean Bolebruchs, Gabriel Buentello, The Cynthia Brothers, April Childers, Molly Dilworth, Sam Falls and Joe Zorilla, Ry Fyan, Ivy Haldeman, Bryan Harrington, Elizabeth Hart, Natalie Labriola, Andres Laracuente, Molly Lowe, Robbie McDonald, Keegan McHargue, Mollie McKinley, Andy Meerow and Alexis Gideon, Daniel Oh, Maia Cruz Palileo, Todd Pistone, Jory Rabinovitz, Geoff Rawling, Ian Rosenberg and Matt Webster, Kant Smith, Sondra Sun-Odeon, Robert Syracuse, Sam Tierney, Sean Townley, Siebren Versteeg, Skint, and Revel Woodard, among others.
