Art●Struck Festival

Art●Struck Festival 2019

September 28th, 10 a.m. – 9 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. Attendees will also have the opportunity to enjoy the Art Picnic, a participatory temporary art installation that involves the painting of an array of large canvas picnic “blankets”. Other highlights include pop-up music, dance, and theater performances and other types of performance art, pop-up exhibition space for local museums, a sculpture walk, road roller printmaking, and more! Join us for this special event and celebrate all the latest additions to public art in Johnson City!

A detailed schedule will be posted when available. This event is organized and hosted by Johnson City Public Art.
