National Arts Drive

Sat Jun 20, 1 pm
Various Locations Hosford-Abernethy
"Artists around the nation are invited to display, perform and showcase their creativity from driveways, balconies, windows, front lawns and local small businesses.

Community supporters are invited to drive their city blocks and suburban streets to see and hear the artists, performers, musicians and designers living in their community from a safe and healthy distance.

The driving experience will be paired with a mobile website where drivers can engage with the artist and support them from a distance through three main avenues:

1. Like, Follow and/or share their work via social media
2. “Tip” them through a non-touch app
3. “Star” and save their online store for a future purchase

Though we are encouraging “drivers” to support artists as they drive-thru, there will be no charge to engage. " (Promo Copy)
