Y art? Is a community based festival centered around up and coming musicians and visual artists. It gives an opportunity to show case every level of artistry from children’s drawings to professional full time entrepreneurs. The festival takes place in residential areas around south bend to give a grass roots and intimate setting, with the idea of getting to know our neighbors in someone’s backyard. Upon the agreement of the host, local artists are invited to experiment with how art goes beyond a canvas by utilizing the space in immersive artistic ways. Even beyond the artwork there is an opportunity for smaller business within the food industry to sell their product. This is an opportunity of growth for the overall community.
I think now more than ever we need to have a safe space to be together with the universal language of music and art.
