Community Celebration of the Arts October 9

Thursday, September 23, 2021 - 11:44am

The Public Art Commission, Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources, and ARTS Wake Forest are partnering to host a special “Community Celebration of the Arts” on Saturday, Oct. 9, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Alston-Massenburg Center and Taylor Street Park, 416 N. Taylor St.

Open and free to the public, this family-friendly event will include food, music, and a variety of indoor and outdoor arts activities for children of all ages, including rock painting, chalk art, and “do it yourself” kits to assemble on-site or take home.

The occasion will also highlight the public art murals and sculptures installed throughout Wake Forest and included in the Virtual Public Art Tour available on the Town website and Town app. The PAC will recognize the talented artists responsible for these works of art during a ceremony at noon in Taylor Street Park.

Throughout the event, food will be provided by Crumbstruction at no cost while supplies last, and a local DJ will be on site playing popular tunes for fun and dancing.
