Art Located Outside
Visual and performing arts
Runs from May - November
In a recent survey of our area of impact, we asked neighbors what they wanted to see in the South of Penn area. Art activities for children was one of the top responses! Barrio is now going beyond it's first goal for these programs: connecting local, inner city, young, nontraditional artists with the community and now are looking to bring neighbors into the design of art programming.
Plein Air programs vary in time. Usually they last between 1 to 2 hours in length, and are completely free to the public. All you need to bring is your creativity and an open mind!
ALAS projects include Plein Air art workshops, Flash mobs, Alleyway Concerts, and the Ojos photography project.
Barrio's plan to change narratives include the re-imagining of our community. The idea is simple: art can help reclaim urban spaces that are underutilized or abandoned. Art projects can help reconnect neighbors with their environment as they feel more connected to the spaces they use as makeshift art rooms. Barrio has been very intentional about utilizing public spaces for these workshops to help re-establish ownership of people's communities.
