You do not want to miss the April ArtWalk! We have three major events happening that night; in addition to our ArtWalk venues featuring local artists.
In its fifth year, Floraffti is a five month long placemaking and community engagement project taking place in Chapel Hill and Carrboro, NC Feb. through May 2017 by artist Carter Hubbard. In February and March 2017, Floraffiti and Josephus Thompson of The Poetry Project will work with several teen and adult community groups in Chapel Hill and Carrboro: Boomerang, Youth Community Project, teens from Orange County High Schools, and the Adults of the NC Art Therapy Institute’s Art and Peer Support Group. Josephus will facilitate each person’s written piece, transforming him or her into performers of their creations. Some participants will perform a collaborate piece. Each poet will choose one word significant to their piece and with the help of local volunteers and artist, Carter Hubbard, founder of Floraffiti, they will plant their words throughout Chapel Hill and Carrboro. Multiple spoken word performances by local youth and adults will take place around 10 to 15 of the sprouted words during the 2nd Friday ArtWalk, April 14th. For a map of performances - click here.
