TENNESSEE - Alcatraz East Crime Museum to Hold 2nd Annual Graffiti Art Contest

Graffiti artists are invited to compete for prizes and to have their work on exhibit

PIGEON FORGE, Tennessee (April 2, 2019) – Drive through any city in America and you are bound to see some graffiti. Some people love it, while others hate it. These images, letters and paintings found on buildings, bridges and other surfaces can often signal decay and bring property values down. This has prompted many cities to create designated graffiti art spaces, and many businesses have commissioned artists to create murals to deter graffiti on their walls. Putting graffiti art into the spotlight, Alcatraz East Crime Museum will be holding its 2nd annual Graffiti Art Contest on Saturday, June 1, 2019. All graffiti artists are invited to compete for cash prizes and the chance to have their work on exhibit in the museum.

FLORIDA - Lower Keys Island Art Fest to Blend Seasonal Cheer and Community Spirit

BIG PINE KEY, Florida Keys — Local artisans’ wares, live music and edible temptations await visitors at the annual Big Pine & Lower Keys Island Art Festival scheduled Saturday, Nov. 25, in a show of seasonal spirit in the midst of ongoing recovery from Hurricane Irma.

Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Susan Miller said the chamber’s annual holiday festivities, traditionally held Thanksgiving weekend, are more important than ever after the hurricane’s Sept.10 impact on the area.

“The festival is a chance for the community to come together, celebrate local creativity and welcome the upcoming holiday season,” Miller said. “It’s also a way for visitors to support and recognize the Lower Keys’ recovery from the storm.”

The open-air fair is to be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the grounds of the chamber headquarters at mile marker 31 oceanside in Big Pine.

This is your last chance to see how it all began!

Orlando, Fl - The last chance to see the original dancer, Jessie Sander, perform in DRIP’s International Drive show is Saturday, August 26, 2017 during DRIP’s 500th show. Jessie Sander is switching into a new role at DRIP as a performance director.

Jessie Sander joined DRIP in 2011 before the show opened on International Drive. She was a part of the fundraising phase, painted the building, stage managed and performed as the first “Yellow” character in the show. Sander performed the first 100 shows without an understudy and is finishing her reign after being an integral part of over 500 shows and special events.

Jessie has had a huge hand in helping shape DRIP into what it is today. She originated the role of “Yellow” and then went on to perform every single role in the show. Her knowledge of the ins and outs of the show, interaction with the messy mediums and audience experience makes her invaluable as a director. explains DRIP founder and creative director Jessica Mariko.

If you were to have asked me 5 years ago where I see myself today I would never have imagined becoming a director for DRIP. It has been such a rewarding experience to build this project from the ground up. Knowing what it has taken to get to where we are makes me ecstatic for the future. Said Jessie Sander. As DRIP's performance director, I will work closely with our group of passionate artists to create bigger, better and messier projects. I'm most excited to work with our team on events in the community and find ways to give back to the city beautiful that has supported DRIP for the last 11 years!
