NOTE: Due to a private matter, the T.R.R. Cobb House is no longer able to be involved in this Saturday’s Art Crawl. The AWA is working on finding a replacement venue. Meanwhile, we will still have some of our fine poets reading at GO Bar between sets, so please come out and visit with us!
10/07/14 NEW UPDATE:
We will be reading from the porch of the T.R.R. Cobb House. Almost as good as reading inside. Underground Dance Society will be performing 10-minute pieces on the lawn at 5:30 and 6:30, so we can arrange our pieces to be read before, between and after. Yay!
More details about the Art Crawl —
The fourth annual Art Crawl, sponsored by the Athens Area Arts Council, will take place 5-9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 11, along Prince Avenue in downtown Athens. This year’s theme is “Sunset and Shadows,” although artists are encouraged to submit pieces of all types to the event.
The event route hits stops along Prince Avenue, including Go Bar, the Bottleworks and Daily Groceries, with a detour for kids activities at Big City Bread. Works will be featured in businesses along the way. This year will differ from prior iterations: not only have they moved from Pulaski Street to Prince Avenue, but they are also expanding the breadth of media to include more than the hand-made arts. Music, theater, spoken word, video, and other performances will be included along the crawl.
Last year’s event brought more than 400 people to see the art and mingle among the businesses on the route. Athens Area Arts Council board members and other volunteers organizing this year’s event hope to draw an even bigger crowd this year to see the varied performances, interactive displays and kids activities. They will be using the hashtag #ATHNOW for the event, allowing everyone to share the experience in real-time.
You can find the event on Facebook, hosted by Athens Art Crawls.
