DSI’s Art Alley III Pop Up

Our Third Annual Art Alley Pop-up event is taking over our downtown alley and turning it into a giant art space complete with food, drink, and tunes.  This year we will be doing an all day mural competition. There will be 7-8 murals that will be completed in an 7 hour time span. We will have awards for popular choice and professionally judged category that will have a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.

Art, Music & Drinks are hitting art alley in Downtown Springfield. This unique event is unlike any other in the capital city! This DSI place-making event helps beautify underutilized alleys in Downtown Springfield. DSI is hosting their third annual alley party in the commonly known Art Alley between the Reisch Building & the Old Town Mall between 4th & 5th Streets, just west of the Old State Capitol on September 14. The painting will begin at 10 am and will finish by 5 pm. Official judging and awards will be given out at the unveiling party starting at 5 pm.

Stay tuned for announcements on artists and tickets on our Facebook event. Advance tickets are five dollars cheaper than at the door the evening of the event (at the door is $15 admission).

Rain date is Sunday, September 15.

Calling Artists for 2019 Art Alley Challenge

Artist Immanuel Ahiable greeting friends and family during our first Art Alley Pop Up.

This year’s Art Alley III Pop Up takes place on Saturday, September 14 — with a twist. Seven selected artists or artistic teams will “compete” by completing a mural in only one day. As night falls, we’ll gather for our Pop Up Party, where guests can vote for their favorite mural — so that we can give the artists prizes! — and to celebrate Springfield’s artistic community.

Tickets are not yet available but all proceeds will benefit DSI’s ARTification Public Art Program.

The Call for Artists has been released thanks to our partners at Springfield Art Association. Please download the Call for Artists and apply today: Art Alley III Mural Competition Call FINAL
