One of Franklinton’s shiniest gems has announced details for their annual creative bash.
Urban Scrawl will return to Franklinton on August 26 for the eleventh year of live local painting, singing, dancing, eating, and boozing.
This two-day fest hosts local artists who transform huge wooden planks right before spectators’ eyes. Hit up Urban Scrawl at noon on Saturday and you’ll see plain slates covered in lead lines. Return at 6pm on Sunday to find beautiful pieces of art that you’ll swear took the talented folks proudly standing beside them months to complete.
Many of these projects will be available to purchase at the Art for Franklinton fundraiser auction. The murals that don’t go up for sale are weather sealed and triumphantly displayed around the neighborhood.
It’s truly amazing to watch our city’s artists bring to life white cloth in only 48 hours. These folks and their work serve as constant reminders of the urban renewal happening all around us. The other musical and dance guests featured at Urban Scrawl don’t let you forget either.
If you’re like us and most of the general population, the skills of all participants at Urban Scrawl will seem wildly unattainable. But don’t worry, there’ll be activities there that you do very well; eating and drinking.
Local breweries and food trucks will be circling the not-so-starving-artists both days of the fest.
There will be plenty of parking around the site at 400 W. Rich St. and don’t worry about admission because you get in fo’ free!
Urban Scrawl will happen Saturday, August 26 from noon to 10pm and then on Sunday, August 27 from noon to 6pm.
