Goodyear Arts is a program that sets up shop in underused buildings and offers artists residencies for two months. In addition to the studio space, the artists are paid a stipend. The artists’ work often extends to alteration of the building itself.
At the end of the residencies, Goodyear Arts hosts a celebration where the public can see the artists’ work. In addition, the events often include music and dance.
Goodyear Arts is now at Camp North End. The official address of Goodyear Arts is 1720 Statesville Avenue, but you’d do just as well plugging 1824 Statesville Avenue, Camp North End’s address, into your phone. The best place to park is “The Mount” parking lot. Just follow the signs.
Goodyear Arts hosts other art and music events as well.
Peach Pie Art Show
Friday, June 7th, 2019
6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Peach Pie is a group art exhibition that offers up a slice of the nuanced identities of women that inhabit the South. Whether or not the artists are expressing their “Southerness” through their work is beside the point, as we are interested in exploring womanhood and identity in the context of locality. This is the third installment of the Pie shows, a series of exhibitions that explores the messy aspects of identity.
Free beer sponsored by Birdsong Brewery, Lenny Boy Brewing CO., and Bold Missy, while it lasts.
The exhibition will be showcasing over 40 artists from across the southeast.
