LAS CRUCES- What’s up? WHAT’S ART! A group that joined for an arts marketing brainstorming session convention in 2008 is getting together again and adding a street festival, an arts show and sale and other attractions to the artistic mix. The 2nd Annual WHAT’S ART? Convention will be Oct. 2 and 3 at Court Youth Center/Alma d’arte Charter School, 402 Court St.
The What’s Art? Convention is still seeking artists who wish to sell their art, but today’s the deadline [Sept. 25] for artists who would like to sell their art at the event. Guidelines can be obtained at Alma d’arte or at http://talkingstick.info. All media will be accepted. There is no fee to enter. The 15 percent commission will be used to defray convention expenses.
Court Street will be blocked off on Saturday, Oct. 3 for the Street Fest portion of the event.
John Villani, author of “100 Best Small Art Towns in America” will speak at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 2 about “communities creating themselves as centers of art, creativity and livability.”
Sabrina Pratt, executive director of the Santa Fe Arts Commission will also join the discussion.
