Free Art Friday

Calling all artists – painters, illustrators, photographers, graphic designers, sculptors – contribute and share your arts with the people of Dublin!

A new movement has just been started in Dublin and the first Free Art Friday is due to take place on Friday 23rd January 2009. That’s next week folks! The idea behind it is for artists to leave their work of arts on the streets of Dublin which can be taken away by their admirers for free.

If you’re a budding artist, this could be a good way to advertise your work without involving large publicity costs and the likes. If you intend to participate, please note that you should inform the organiser by Monday 19th January 2009 so they know exactly what pieces are out there on Friday in the streets. If you’re an art lover, then this is a good way to get to know the city artists and discover what could be your next art find. It’s quite a win-win situation in my opinion.

The only drag that I can think of – the weather. Fingers crossed for a relatively dry day next week. We wouldn’t want beautiful artworks to be soaked by the rain, do we?
