Artists in Storefronts 4 to Host Over
40 Artists in More Than 25 Exhibits
June 1 Through September 9, 2013!
Artists in Storefronts returns to the Whittier neighborhood for the fourth run of the award winning public art project that pairs local artists with vacant and active businesses to create exhibits that form an urban walking gallery in and along the Eat Street commercial corridor.
The project kicks off Saturday, June 1st with an outdoor music festival hosted by the Black Forest Inn featuring Mixed Precipitations Picnic Operetta, Frances Gumm, Cult Status Gallery on Tour, as well as other eclectic local talent. The evening will wrap with a "light sabre walking tour" of the exhibits led by organizer, Joan Vorderbruggen.
The Outlet Performance Festival curated by Jaime Carrera returns with an eight week run featuring sixteen acts that run the gamut of performance from live music to modern dance in the basement of Los Amigo's.
AIS4 will also feature several large scale murals by local artists Erin Sayer, Wundr, and Taylor Lindgren.
Monthly walking and biking tours will be offered as well as a "Maker's Market", participation in the Greenway Glow, the return of the "Bridging Festival" in Phillips West, and a bombastic closing performance by core AIS artist Jaime Carrera at Slice of New York pizzeria.
