It’s Easter Art Hunt time, y’all! We love this event, and the third year is better than ever with the help of our friends at East Atlanta Community Association and the East Atlanta Kids Club: we’re talking ALL-DAY, FAMILY FRIENDLY throwdown! We’re talking live music, Easter-themed arts and crafts, a children’s egg hunt, food trucks (including King of Pops!), all leading up to the Art Hunt where hidden pieces of art will be free to whoever finds them!
This event starts at 10:00 AM, Saturday April 12 in Brownwood Park, and is 100% free to the public, with art supplies generously donated by Binders Art Supplies and Frames. For more info and a timeline of events, visit the Facebook event here…
Atlanta Fringe provides an accessible platform for independent theatre companies and artists who, otherwise, may not be able to afford to produce their work. AND, Fringe provides Atlanta audiences with new and exciting performances that are a little different, edgy, experimental, weird – all for an incredibly reasonable price (only $10 per ticket to any show)!
Atlanta Fringe artists keep 75% of their ticket sales, and we pay our venues another 20% as rental fees. Since Atlanta Fringe only keeps 5% of all ticket revenue to cover costs, we need YOUR help to make this festival a reality!
Your donation will help fund technicians and front-of-house managers, production needs, marketing and printing costs, and box office and administrative needs! If you donate through power2give.org, your gift will be MATCHED DOLLAR-FOR-DOLLAR by the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs!
