Street Painting at the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair

Tess returns this year and will recreate The Danaides by John William Waterhouse throughout the four days of the Art Fair. In the classical tradition, the Danaides come to represent the futility of a repetitive task that can never be completed. In Greek mythology, the Danaides were the fifty daughters of King Danaus of Argos, who were all married on a single occasion to the fifty sons of Danaus's twin brother Aegyptus. In the most common version of the myth, all but one of them killed their husbands on their wedding night, and are condemned to spend eternity having to draw water from a well and pour it into a vessel from which it continually escaped.
