The ReImagine Street Art Festival was created in 2009 as an initiative of the Downtown Penticton Association. This year the festival is being revived by the Penticton and District Community Arts Council as part of Arts Rising 2017.
Join us at the Penticton Art Gallery, Saturday May 20th for the first peek of ReImagine 2017 with live mural painting presented by ArtsRising and the Penticton Arts Council.
Local artists will be working throughout the day to realize their visions on panels surrounding the Penticton Art Gallery.
There will be a Lemonade Stand, Face Painting, a Mini Arts Market, Live Music and DJ Loup will be spinning some tunes. Lisa Hall's Poetry Board will be available for your artistic expression. Special guest characters will make appearances throughout the day for your entertainment and delight.
Early Bird Tickets for ArtsRising Penticton will be available for the first time.
Our information booth will help answer all your festival questions and give you another opportunity to join the evolution!
There is still time to apply to be an artist in the ReImagine Street Art portion of Arts Rising. We are open to proposals for murals, installations, street performance, interventions, guerrilla gardening, yarn bombing, clowning, puppetry, projections and other projects that reinterpret, reclaim or repurpose public space. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, our deadline is May 31st 2017.
