Art●Struck Festival

Art●Struck Festival 2019

September 28th, 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.
At Founders Park in Downtown Johnson City

The Art●Struck Festival will bring together artists and arts organizations to celebrate and support the arts community while highlighting the public art pieces that have been installed throughout downtown Johnson City. This festival will offer high quality artwork for sale to the public, arts demonstrations and activities for all ages. One defining feature of the festival will be the Puppet March with the Cattywampus Puppet Council, which will involve the display of giant, paper mache puppets as community members and the council march through Founders Park.

Road roller printmaking will take place on Commerce St. under the supervision of artist Laken Bridges. This large-scale block printmaking will generate 4-foot by 2-foot prints of Bridges’ original, hand-carved Johnson City-themed design. Prints will be offered for sale to the public. An Art Picnic activity in the performance area will allow kids of all ages to doodle and embellish large, painted picnic blankets.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to enjoy other hands-on activities such as a community mural, a weaving fence, wand making, and art puzzles. Other highlights include pop-up music, theater, and dance performances and other types of performance art, a sculpture walk, plein air painting demonstrations, and more! Join us for this special event and celebrate all the latest additions to public art in Johnson City.

This event is organized and hosted by Johnson City Public Art.
