Come get crafty with us at the Violet Crown Festival Saturday, May 6, 2017, 10am – 5pm
Our next event is the 9th Annual Little Artist BIG ARTIST art exhibit opening. Join us Thursday, April 27 from 6–8pm at the Dougherty Arts Center. The art exhibit is the culmination of 10 weeks of work by our 40 Little Artists and 35 BIG ARTIST.
Our Little Artists are 5th and 6th graders representing six East Austin elementary schools. Each Little Artist will show one of their two artworks alongside a piece created by their BIG ARTIST mentor.
We’ll also have live music from the Blackshear Soundwaves Orchestra, Maplewood Ukulele Choir, Allison Dragon Choir, and the Barbara Jordan Choir. The reception is free, and Spanish translation will be provided. Come out and experience a unique Austin art scene!
HUGE thanks to our Little Artist BIG ARTIST sponsors, Pentagram, KLRU, Verts Mediterranean Grill, Lantana Hummus, Wheatsville Co-op, and Nothing Bundt Cakes for their dedication to the arts community in Austin!
Can’t make the art opening reception? The artwork will be available for viewing through May 21st.
