Countdown to Yard Art Day 2017
“It is my dream that for one day people remember that child within them that likes to play creatively without any judgment or restraint. For us to cross neighborhood, city boundaries. To be inclusive. Art can do this.”
– Deborah Triplett, Yard Art Day creator
Yard Art Day is a grassroots arts exhibition, curated by the community for the community. The annual LABOR DAY event will take place for 24 hours and is for anyone and all to express themselves creatively despite their age or level of expertise. Art of all mediums is allowed – from hula hooping to sculpture – whatever your artistic heart desires.
The Yard Art Day art project invites everyone to celebrate their creative spirit by displaying or performing their own works of art for 24 hours in their front yards or balconies for the public. Looking for some inspiration? Follow our Pinterest Page or Like our Facebook Page.
Those who register their efforts by will be included on the online map, online interactive directory, and printable PDF Street Guide. Also provided to registered participants will be Yard Art Day signs for easier recognition by passing motorists and persons traveling past.
“My passions throughout life have remained the same – friends, family (including my four-legged members), art, photography and gardening. There is one word “Timshel” (Hebrew, choice between good and evil) which is meaningful to me and a quote that says it all “Be the kind of woman, that when your feet hit the ground in the morning, the devil says OH CRAP SHE’S UP.”

We also encourage you to share the YAD love on your timelines – to further spread the Yard Art Day gospel. So that next year and in future years, Yard Art Day can be even bigger and better.
