Yard Party for Art
The Wiregrass Museum of Art’s annual Yard Party for Art, a one-night music and art festival, will be held on the lawn of the museum on Saturday, August 11th. YPA 2018 offers an energetic lineup of live, original music from regional musicians, interactive art installations, yard games, great drinks, delicious food from local food trucks, and a chance to kick off your shoes and dance the night away — all to support art in our community!
This year’s lineup features …
… with spoken word performances from William O’Neal and an interactive art experience from Tallahassee, Florida’s SOUP experimental. Also on display, WMA’s third Alabama Bicentennial project, “Semiotic Compass/Sharing Our Stories,” a public art installation designed to foster open communication and provide a platform for community storytelling.
Pre-sale tickets are $15 and $20 the day of the event. Rather buy your pre-sale tickets in person? Paper tickets will be available at WMA in July.
Gates open at 6:00, and performances begin at 6:30.
