City Looking for “Pop Up Event” Art IdeasDecatur Metro | November 14, 2012
You may have seen this blurb in the latest Decatur Focus…
Next year marks the 25th anniversary of the Decatur Arts Festival. To mark this milestone, we are planning a yearlong arts celebration. The 2010 Strategic Plan calls for expanding public art and a wider variety of art opportunities. Mayor Floyd came up with a great idea for “Sidewalk Saturdays,” featuring an assortment of informal, fun activities throughout the city’s commercial districts. We want to combine this idea with our focus on arts activities and would love your suggestions.
What type of “pop-up events” would you suggest? Are there specific art projects you want to see and would you be interested in working on a committee to implement a community celebration of the arts? Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas or to volunteer.
Hmmm…sidewalk pottery? Mimes? Stand-up? Caricature drawings? Barbershop quartets?
