Free Radical is fast approaching with two nights of amazing local art on October 26 and November 2.
We are so excited about this great article written by Jeff Kaczmarczyk from MLive.
Here is some of what he wrote:
“The downtown exhibition, promoting artists and small business in the Heartside district, celebrates its 10th anniversary featuring local art in unusual settings.
Work by 192 artists in 25 storefronts, artist studios, galleries and businesses goes on display on Friday, Oct. 26 and again on Friday, Nov. 1 during the project coordinated by Dwelling Place.
Temporary galleries will feature an eclectic mix of work by local artists, some for sale. Businesses on the Avenue such Sanctuary Folk Art and Vertigo Music will have extended hours.”
This year Avenue for the Arts is hosting tours for Free Radical. Lead by an Avenue for the Arts guide the tour will feature insight into each Free Radical site as well as, South Division’s public art and historic buildings. At each space artists will discuss their artwork, the significance of the Free Radical and the changes to South Division.
Fun, energetic and knowledgeable our tour guides have the inside scoop. We encourage participants with inquisitive minds interested in meeting creative community members while participating in a robust dialogue about the Free Radical show.
The Avenue for the Arts is offering member and student discount for our Free Radical Walking tours. Participants who purchase the $5.00 ticket for a 2 hour tour will be asked to show their membership or student ID at the Tour.
To Celebrate 10 years of utilizing non traditional spaces to showcase art and the artists we are taking the event to the next level, with an emphasis on commentary, dialogue and critique. This year every venue’s curator will choose new work from at least two artists that have participated in past Free Radical events. Each space will also assign a person to contribute documentation of the show. The documenter will present their perspective of the show November 2nd in a way that stimulates interaction between visitors, artists, curators and the creative community at large.
