More information: The Ball is a socially stimulating cultural experience inspired by the experiential art technique of Roxbury-based artist Daniel Callahan. Daniel’s visual art practice of “MassQing” is derived from the ancient tradition of body decoration practiced by nearly all indigenous cultures on the planet. By using the human face as a canvas, these “MassQs” literally meld the subject with the artwork, transforming a person into a distinctly unique walking artistic expression.
