When: Saturday, November 10, 2012 noon to 10pm
Where: Downtown Bradenton's new Riverwalk


ArtSlam 2012 will continue the concept that has proven so successful over the last several years.  Working in teams -artists, sculptors, dancers, poets, painters, designers, photographers, musicians, videographers, and other creative individuals will create temporary, one-day, works of public art and performance.  Just as in previous years, ArtSlam will bring together professional artists, students, faculty, and thousands of onlookers to collaborate on creative projects.

2012 brings ArtSlam to an exciting new location.  This year’s event will take place on Bradenton’s new Riverwalk Park, which stretches for over a mile along the Manatee River in downtown Bradenton.  Art projects and performances will stretch from the new skateboard park, through winding, landscaped  walkways, to a grand pavilion area and amphitheater.  The twelve hour event will include a riverfront festival with food and multiple live music and performance areas.

Check back the week of November 5 for a map of
creative team locations on the Riverwalk.
