The 17th annual Art All Night will feature original artwork, activities for children and adults, an art auction and live entertainment. Throughout the night, guests can participate in collaborative art activities, including chalk art, group improv sessions, and memory drawing. On-site artists will collaborate to create a work of art, and the live art auction gives guests a chance to bid on the pieces created during the 24-hour period.
Art All Night for Children
Children's activities will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday, April 26, and again 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, April 27. The children's area will be adjacent to a youth-friendly section of art; the rest of the show is uncensored. Children and families will have the chance to build their own cardboard city, weave using recycled materials, and create silkscreen prints, among other fun activities.
