Alpine’s Gallery Night, Inc. and Texas Commission on the Arts will be bringing art cars and education together in rural West Texas. Executive Director, Keri Blackman wrote a grant earlier this year in hopes to bring more art cars to West Texas during this year’s much anticipated ARTWALK and expose our school kids to a creative concept of “rolling art”. With the help of an arts and education grant from Texas Commission on the Arts we were able to achieve our goal. This year we will have four art car artists arrive a day early, Wilber the Whirlibird, Snappy the Snail, Women That Rock and Austin Bike Zoo.
The art car artists will visit Alpine and Marfa schools on Friday, November the 18th during regular classroom hours. The car artists will discuss their creative process, show off their works of art and take questions from local kids. If you are interested in attending while your kids are in school please let your art teacher or principal know.
