“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.
Currently with over 1700 Facebook page members, the opportunity for all of those that register their efforts by August 20th will be included on an online map. Also provided to registered participants will be Yard Art Day signs for easier recognition by passing motorists and persons traveling past.
Step Right Up!
As the song says,
Join us and be a part
of this year's
Yard Art Day!
"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."
Yard Art Day 2014 is almost here. Time to get your yard art on! 24 hours of creativity…from midnight to midnight Sept 1st, Monday. FREE event for everyone of all ages and all levels of artistic expression. Dance, sing, hang a painting you did, wrap a tree with fabric, hula hoop, belly dance, do a photo display – whatever your “art heart” desires. See past examples on this site. Or visit our Facebook page for ideas as well as Pinterest.
Be sure to email me and let me know your address so that I can put you on the YAD map plus make certain your get a yard sign. This sign helps people easily spot your yard art from the street. Signs – I will be making a post here as well as on social media letting you all know where to pick up your sign. If you are out of Charlotte or out of state – I can mail you a pdf of the sign for you to either get one made or make one yourself. Thank you all for your participation and support of this annual project.
