10th Annual Folk & Urban Art Festival
April 27, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFREE
A one-day cultural celebration where art, music, and community intersect, with FREE fun for the whole family – local art and traditional crafts for sale, The 10th Annual Festival highlights emerging visual artists and their artwork; a full line-up of live entertainment including African drumming and storytelling, Cajun and Zydeco music by The Porch Dogs, a pottery wheel demonstration by Crealde’ artists, free children’s Aztec mask-making workshop and a parade, along with scrumptious food vendors.
Produced by Barbara Chandler, the festival takes place in the historic Hannibal Square neighborhood located three blocks west of Park Avenue – a revitalized leisure destination for local residents and out-of-town visitors.
Established in 2007 by Crealdé School of Art, the Hannibal Square Heritage Center pays tribute to the past, present and future contributions of West Winter Park’s African American community through a permanent collection of historic photographs, oral histories and public art.
The Heritage Center will be open for guests to tour the permanent collection and the featured visiting exhibition: “The Sage Project, Phase II: Hannibal Square Elders Tell Their Stories” which features photographic portraits of the elders taken by documentary photographer Peter Schreyer and oral histories by Heritage Center historians, Fairolyn Livingston and Mary Daniels.
This free event is made possible by Crealdé School of Art, a nonprofit art organization supported in part by memberships; United Arts of Central Florida; the City of Winter Park; the State of Florida, Division of Cultural Affairs; The Florida Arts Council; The National Endowment for the Arts; and various private foundations. This project is funded in part by Orange County Government through the Arts & Cultural Affairs Program.
