Art On The Ave 2019

Art on the Ave is an annual spring art festival celebrating its 10th anniversary within the Slatterly Park neighborhood. This year’s theme “Sound & Color” was chosen to focus on how music and art both function in bringing community together and connecting people with one another.

As a 501c3 nonprofit organization, Art On The Ave works to promote the education of the arts, revitalize SE Rochester with progressive beautification projects, showcase local artisans and art-based organizations, food, musicians, and fine arts performers. The highlight of this event is the unveiling of a permanent boulevard sculpture hand-crafted by a regional artist to symbolize this year’s theme. The sculpture will become the fifteenth public sculpture located within the Slatterly Park neighborhood. This year’s event will also feature pop-up art, live art, and locally designed t-shirts available for sale.

All are welcome at Art on the Ave, which will be held on Saturday, May 18th from 9:30 am until 4:30 pm, on 6th Ave SE (on the block of Redeemer Church). Food and drink will be available for purchase from Grand Rounds Brewing Company & Restaurant, Fiddlehead Coffee Co., and People’s Food Co-op; no carry-ins please.

LIVE CHALK ART
Visiting artist Kathleen Roling will be working throughout the day on a street mural based on the theme of Sound and Color. When you stop by and check out the progression of her work, don’t miss out on a drawing to win your own professional art supplies!

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural heritage fund.

ACCESSIBILITY
AOTA is dedicated to inclusion and accessibility! Accessible portable toilet will be available. Please contact us at least two weeks prior to the event if you have accessibility concerns.
