All in favor of transmuting Clark Park into a bona fide wonder emporium, say “Aye.” OK, good, because FIGMENT, a participatory art project that began in New York City in 2007 (and has been springing up in all sorts of cities around the country since), has some righteous ideas for doing so. Take this Sunday’s pop-up. It’s a here-now-gone-tomorrow confetti explosion of interactive art projects fit for all ages, a response to the notion of art as exclusive or out of touch. At this free fest, you can touch the works, dance with the Group Motion dance company, construct metallic cities on Bevan Weissman’s magnetic Neodya II piece, smooch some dogs at a pit-bull kissing booth, take a hands-on trapeze lesson or grab some friends who are bigger than you to heave around Melanie Armer’s Sisyphus 2.0 — a massive steel sphere adorned with speakers.
Sun., Oct. 6, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., free, Clark Park, 4398 Chester Ave., figmentproject.org.
