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.

Thank you to our sponsors!

Join us on April 23rd 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 a weaving fence (back by popular demand!), sculpture assembly, flag/wand making, art puzzles, bucket drumming, painting, and chalking. Stop by the steamroller printmaking station to witness large-scale printmaking in action, and check out the art demo booths to see creative activities in the works. View several exciting live performances showcasing the talents of dancers, acrobats, and musicians. Learn more about local arts programs and organizations, and above all, have some fun and help us celebrate all the latest additions to public art in Johnson City!

The festival’s art market will feature the work of over 60 artists ranging from painting, printmaking, and digital art to ceramics, fiber art, and jewelry. Artists Laken Bridges and Sage Perrott will oversee on-site steamroller printmaking, generating oversized prints of original, hand-carved designs. The large-scale prints will be offered for sale to the public along with smaller prints on items such as bandanas. Giant paper mache puppets designed and constructed by the East Tennessee State University Marching Band and Professor Jonathon Taylor will make an appearance during the event, lending a whimsical flair to the celebration.

This family-friendly event is free and open to the public.
