Another Chance to Eat, Shop, and Party!
The Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/ Douglas County (CAC) continues with Pop Up Summer adventure for the community! The “How I Got Over – A Lockdown Collection” opening reception was a discussion-packed, visually rich and literally delicious event. If you missed the reception, you still have the month of August to visit for a walk through. Weekdays through August 25, six artists have work on display reflecting on overcoming the quarantine— “How I Got Over; A Lockdown Collection” August’s exhibiting artists include Tiffany Charesse, rEN Dillard, Akua Hardy, Crystal Jin Kim, Joseph McKinney, and Sean Mulkey.
What better time to come view the artwork than when there’s food, live music, local businesses to shop, and a Tiny Fundraiser artwork to collect? August 12 and August 19, from 5-7 pm the CAC will keep its doors open for community fun. Events at the CAC are always free and open to the public, with plenty of parking provided for guests.
The Tiny Fundraiser comes to the center every year, but you’ve never seen it like this before! Vendors are setting up on the front lawn Thursdays, with music playing on the porch, and food for guests. Artists have turned in their 6×6 works of art to be displayed for the months of July and August. The artworks are sold for $20 each to support the events and programs provided to the community by the Arts Council. On August 12, 5-7 pm, you can order delicacies from the Hud Truck, Sweet Sisters Ice Cream, Bedelia’s Bees, and shop from The Peach Mitten, Painted 2 Perfection, Paparazzi $5 Jewelry, The Memory Bunny, Natural Gifts, BellaJai & Co., Something Unique, My Sister’s Keeper, and much more.
