Art●Struck Festival


Art●Struck Festival 2020

Saturday, September 26th, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
At King Commons in Downtown Johnson City

The Art●Struck Festival brings 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 offers high quality artwork for sale to the public, arts demonstrations and activities for all ages.

Join us in September for this unique arts experience! Visit a wide array of talented local artists at the festival’s art market. Bring the whole family and enjoy hands-on activities such as sculpture making, a vinyl community mural, a weaving fence (back by popular demand!), wand/kite/flag making, bucket drumming, chalking, art puzzles, and more. Stop by the steamroller printmaking station to witness large-scale printmaking in action, and doodle while you lounge in the Art Picnic area. Other highlights include pop-up music performances and other types of performance art. Have some fun and help us celebrate all the latest additions to public art in Johnson City!

More festival activities and highlights will be finalized soon – check back for festival updates!

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