Community Block Party

 

The Springfield Art Association (SAA) is hosting a community block party where you can paint the streets of downtown. Each registrant will receive a 6x6 foot square to paint solo or with family, co-workers, clubs or sports teams – up to six painters can work on one square.  The painting will begin at 12 p.m. and last through 7 p.m., but the streets will not reopen until 10 p.m., so everyone can wander down Washington Street and enjoy the newly created outdoor gallery. The cost to participate is $35 in advance and $40 on the day of the event, and all of the supplies are included. If you are feeling talented and have a great design idea, consider spending the $45 to enter the pro category for a chance to win a cash prize up to $300. Food vendors will be on hand and live music will be playing throughout the day. All proceeds benefit the operations and programming of the SAA. Admission is free.
