Art at the Market! Saturday Sept. 18

“Art at the Market” will give neighborhood artists exposure during ArtPrize

The Southeast Area Farmers’ Market will host “Art at the Market” during market hours, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday Sept. 18 at Martin Luther King Jr. Park, 900 Fuller Ave. SE 49506. The date was chosen to coincide with ArtPrize as participating as an artist in this event is not always accessible to artists from the Market’s neighborhoods or neighbors living nearby. Also, the neighborhood has many accomplished artists in its midst. Art at The Market will provide them an opportunity to showcase their talents, inspire their neighbors, and share any messages that their art expresses.

Artists are welcome to show up with their art, their own table/display and chairs, a tent (optional), and their own payment options. Artists will not have to pay a vendor fee on Sept. 18. All art displayed must be suitable for viewing by families with young children per the market manager’s determination. Art expressing a social justice message is strongly encouraged.

The Southeast Area Farmers Market will also host three community partners on Sept. 18:
