Evereman Project is weekend-long celebration
Outdoor murals, major exhibitions and gallery openings (not to mention 4 Bridges)—Chattanooga has become a visual artists’ haven. Joining the scene is the Evereman Road Show, a two-day workshop promoting a street art project and the free art movement in Chattanooga.
Atlanta-based artist Evereman is looking to expand the gift of art and encourage the community to participate. The event will begin Friday, April 18 at 6 p.m. at the Farmer’s Daughter restaurant, 1211 Hixson Pike, where there will be a discussion and informational session about the project and the free art movement.
On April 19, at noon a production party will take place at Artifact, 1080B Duncan Avenue. Create art to share with the community and participate in workshops featuring techniques like stencil-making and hot branding.
A citywide art hunt will then take place at 4 p.m. The @Evereman Twitter account will feature hints and clues as to where the art is hidden throughout Chattanooga.
To conclude the event, an Evereman sculpture burn will occur at 7:30 p.m. at 201 W. Main Street, alongside live music, food trucks and dancing. As the Evereman Project promotes, anyone and everyone can contribute to the street art that decorates our community.
