1st Annual Keller Art Walk call for artists

Arts take center stage in new Keller festival

A new family-friendly festival celebrating the arts is coming to Old Town Keller thanks to a partnership between the city’s Public Arts Board and the local nonprofit Keller Public Arts Society.

Keller, TX – The first annual Keller Art Walk, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 14 from 3 to 8 pm, will honor the artists selected for the city’s new rotating art program and celebrate the recently completed improvements in Old Town Keller.

Location: Old Town Keller West

Earlier this year, the Arts Board initiated the inaugural phase of a rotating art-on-loan program to fill the sculpture pads added during the city’s recent updates to Old Town Keller West. The pads are located along the strolling promenade that runs north-south adjacent to the eclectic restaurants and small businesses in the area.

For Phase I of the program, the Arts Board selected five sculptures for a two-year exhibit; in 2018, they will select and install six additional pieces, also for a two-year exhibit. The staggered phases will bring new pieces to Old Town each year, providing a dynamic and engaging attraction that will help draw interest and foot traffic to the area.

The Keller Art Walk will be a community event with a unique, strolling atmosphere aimed at showcasing the arts in Keller. Patrons will have the opportunity to meet the artists whose work is on display in Old Town and watch plein-aire, or outdoor, artists create captivating paintings along the promenade. Student musicians from Keller ISD and a variety of local vendors and professional entertainers will also be featured throughout the event.

Sponsorships and vendor spots are still available. Applications can be found at www.cityofkeller.com/artwalk. For more information, call 817-743-4000 or email publicarts@cityofkeller.com.

About KPAS: Keller Public Arts Society is a 501(c)3 corporation dedicated to supporting public art in Keller.  Our mission is to provide a platform for on-going support and participation in the preservation and growth of the local artistic community through collaboration with city government and civic organizations, as well as local businesses, clubs and individuals interested in supporting the arts.  Membership is free.

Fall 2017 ArtsGoggle – REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!

fallartsgoggle

Saturday, October 21, 2017 | Noon to 10pm
Join us as we celebrate the 15th anniversary of ArtsGoggle, 
the Near Southside’s most beloved community arts event.
 
What is ArtsGoggle?
Since its inception in 2003, ArtsGoggle has evolved into a popular festival of the arts in this eclectic neighborhood of historic elegance and urbanism. This free to the public, family-friendly event attracts a crowd as diverse as the neighborhood itself with live music, artistic displays of every kind, food, drink, and fun for everyone.
ArtsGoggle is unlike any event in Fort Worth, as residents from the nearby Fairmount, Mistletoe Heights, Berkeley Place, and Ryan Place neighborhoods are joined by medical district workers and visitors from throughout the region for a community arts festival focused in the Near Southside’s Magnolia Village. One of the event’s goals – along with celebrating art of all kinds – is to showcase the unique and memorable character of the Near Southside. Visitors are invited to park their cars and rediscover this revitalized urban neighborhood by foot or by bicycle, including Fort Worth Bike Sharing bikes.

ArtsGoggle prides itself in hosting a casual, approachable and vibrant environment to appreciate art and learn about the talents within our own community.  For more than a decade, ArtsGoggle has been the launch pad for many artists showing their work for the first time.  ArtsGoggle provides a supportive setting for both aspiring and professional visual artists, to display, sell and seek comment on their artwork.
Embracing all arts, the event also boasts an impressive program of performance art and music.  The 2016 ArtsGoggle featured more than 90 bands, many of which have members who live or work in the Near Southside.  The entertainment at ArtsGoggle is diverse and showcases music from a variety of cultures and styles.  The event partners with arts organizations across Fort Worth to draw attention to their programs.  In years past ArtsGoggle has hosted the Fort Worth Opera for pop-up concerts; showcased Ballet Folklorico de Azteca for a colorful dance performance; and hosted The Bucket List Jazz Band, a band dedicated to the lifelong dream of 90-year-old Jim Milam to resurrect Dixieland Jazz.
HOURS
Event hours are Noon to 10pm, a full day to offer patrons time to experience all that ArtsGoggle has to offer and will allow greater sales opportunities for our artists.
FOCUSED EVENT MAP
ArtsGoggle will focus on a street festival and venues within the Magnolia Urban Village. This condensed site map will provide a more manageable and enjoyable experience for our artists and patrons.
AFFORDABLE FOR ARTISTS
The event is committed to keeping artist’s fees affordable by requiring a registration fee of only $45, with no others fees to participate.  Each year as ArtsGoggle grows, so do the operating costs of the event.  In order to produce an even higher quality event with the same great neighborhood experience, the money collected provides vital funding to support improved communications, pre-event promotions, programs, signage and more.
FREE TO THE PULIC
ArtsGoggle is free to the public, with no wristbands, tickets, admission costs.  Unlike many popular for-profit events in Fort Worth, ArtsGoggle is produced by a not-for-profit community organization and thus has no need to produce revenue.  Instead, the event is exclusively focused on creating an environment to appreciate and celebrate the arts.  All funds raised for the event will be dedicated to producing a memorable and successful experience for artists, venues and patrons of all ages.
EVENT PRODUCER
ArtsGoggle is presented by Near Southside, Inc., the non-profit redevelopment organization working to revitalize this important urban neighborhood, in partnership with our sister organization Historic Southside, Inc.  The event has regularly drawn crowds of 7,000-10,000 and in 2016 experienced incredible growth with a crowd estimated at 40,000 attendees filling the streets with visitors of all ages.  The scene is a wonderfully pleasant testament to the community spirit that fills the Near Southside.
ArtsGoggle is an expansion of Near Southside Inc.’s efforts to promote the Near Southside and build the community fabric essential to our continued development.  Since our founding in 1995, NSI has led development and promotional initiatives that have successfully transformed the Near Southside into one of the region’s most distinctive and vibrant urban districts.  Signs of NSI’s 20-year revitalization effort are evident throughout the district, perhaps most apparent along Magnolia Avenue, S. Main Street and Park Place Avenue, home to the city’s most eclectic selection of locally-owned restaurants and pubs.
Tax Information
Historic Southside, Inc., managed by Near Southside, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  Sponsorship contributions made to Historic Southside, Inc. are deductible as charitable donations.  W-9 forms will be provided at your request.

MAGNOLIA VILLAGE: Taking it to the Street
ArtsGoggle is an outdoor street party spreading more than a mile across the Magnolia Village. The street festival closes Magnolia Avenue to car traffic from 8th Avenue to South Main Street and fills 18 blocks with more 650 visual artists booths and three stages with music and performance art of all varieties.

 
Artists wanting to participate outdoors at the Magnolia Village street party can request this location on their ArtsGoggle Artist Application, and can even request a specific block. All artists will be allotted a 10’x10′ space, unless a larger space is requested. Artists must provide all their own supplies including tent, tables and displays.  However, we are able to provide a small amount of electricity to each booth to power booth lights and small electric device. Tents will line the center of Magnolia Avenue, placed side-by-side and back-to-back with power running between the tents for easy access. More details are provided online in the artist application.
All ArtsGoggle participation details are below.
