Local performance artist Nicole Garneau is doing a project called Heat:05 to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the '95 heat wave that killed 700 people. Every day this year she is doing a performance of some sort as a way to combat the social isolation that led to the deaths of most of the victims. Read descriptions of each performance here, and check the schedule to find an upcoming performance. (Thanks, Amy.)
