Artists around Charlotte and beyond are preparing for Yard Art Day on Labor Day, Monday, September 2nd, 2019. For one day, front yards around the city and beyond will boast art installations of all kinds.
Yard Art Day, the brainchild of local artist Deborah Triplett, is a “grassroots arts exhibition, curated by the community, for the community.” You don’t have to be a professional artist to participate. The art on Yard Art Day takes all forms and anyone can participate.
Some of the art is big, some is small. Some of it’s created by professional artists and some is created by kids. Some is interactive. Some is collaborative. Some is performance art.
If you’d like to get on the official Yard Art Day Map and get a Yard Art Day sign for your yard, email fill out this application. Looking for some inspiration? Have questions? Visit the Facebook page, where you’ll see pictures of installations from past years.
Yard Art Day is open to anyone anywhere, not just in Charlotte. It’s catching on nationwide but it started here.
On Yard Art Day, use the official Yard Art Map to find all the participating locations. Some images from previous years of Yard Art Day:
