art music free community event

SculptEVV time again!

SculptEVV is a wonderful FREE Community Art and Music Festival taking place in Evansville, IN on Saturday, June 7th. This was a blast last year and featured a lot of local (extreme) talent. One crazy artist even went and played with the kids in the fountain! (Hint: ME) It looks to be even bigger and more awesome this year!! I wanted to be one of the artists again but I ended up having a conflict this year. Doesn’t mean I can’t let you all know about it though.

Here’s the Facebook Event Page: https://www.facebook.com/SculptEVV And if you’re an artist, there’s still room to join! It’s free. Below the pictures are all the details on how to join.

Here’s some snapshots I took from last year’s show. You can see Bind and Fleurs du Mal if you look closely.

And here’s how you can join the fun as an artist! Check out the info below and contact Jenna at sculptEVV@gmail.com, copying and pasting the Artist Application section (bolded below) into the email and filling it out with your information.
