7th Annual Art Attack Fredericksburg

September 22 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Free

For one day only, hundreds of artists of the Fredericksburg region will be demonstrating their creative talent on the sidewalks of Caroline and William Street in the city’s historic district.

“Art Attack” is an annual event founded by local artists Bill Harris and Gabriel Pons to encourage the exposure, promotion, and celebration of Fredericksburg’s vibrant art community. Throughout the day, volunteer artists will take to the streets with live art demonstrations ranging in painting and ceramics to mosaic art, music and dance.

The “recruits” of Art Attack range from students as young as grade school through adults, both professional and amateur, working in their chosen medium. What makes this event special is the inclusivity; participating artists don’t require a gallery affiliation or professional status, simply a willingness to execute their craft in the public realm. Typically artists are confined to their studios, garages, or bedrooms to create, whereas the Art Attack Project turns the city’s streets into the artists’ creative space and allows the public to peek into their world. It’s part art performance and pop-up street spectacle. There is no fee to participate.

Recruits will be on their tour of duty throughout the Caroline Street corridor between Amelia and Wolfe Street (600 Block thru 1000 Block) and William Street between Sophia and Princess Anne (100 block thru 300 block).
