Our Third Annual Art Alley Pop-up event is a version of the hit TV show “Project Runway.” Six local artist teams will compete to create a mural in only one day, and unveil it at our Reception Party that same night. The muralists will get feedback and awards from judges at the Reception Party, including Miss Illinois Ariel Beverly who is a former Art Educator whose platform is increasing Art Education in our schools. Plus you’ll have the opportunity to vote for your favorite to win People’s Choice.
Thanks to our sponsors Solomon Colors and Springfield Electric, plus Don Smith Paints who is providing the “Brush Rush” before the painting day, when our artists will pick out their supplies donated by Don Smith Paints, just like when the Project Runway contestants visit “Mood” to pick out their samples.
You can swing by during the day to watch the muralists paint for free. To support beautification projects like this through Downtown Springfield Inc, buy a ticket (for only $10 online in advance) and join us at the Reception Party this evening. Advance tickets are five dollars cheaper than at the door the evening of the event (at the door is $15 admission).
The Alley is located on the west side of 5th Street across from the Old State Capitol, between Washington and Adams.
Get up to the minute announcements on our Facebook event.
Rain date is Sunday, September 15.
