Lawrenceville’s 14th Annual Art All Night

Flyer for Lawrenceville's 14th Art All Night

By: Christine Martinsky

This Saturday, April 30, Lawrenceville will celebrate its 14th year of Art All Night. The annual event which celebrates the arts, community, and creativity has become increasingly popular with locals and out-of-towners over the years to return this year with extended hours and art.

Introduced by residents of Lawrenceville and supporters of the unique community, the event which was created in 1998 debuted with 101 artist pieces. Last year, it incorporated work from 1,189 visual artists and 35 performance artists.

Art All Night is completely organized by a team of volunteers who are responsible for everything from prepping the venue area, to assisting with registration, to constructing exhibit panels. Their work is generously supported by a range of sponsors and donors each year.

The cultural gathering, which takes place at a different venue each year, will begin earlier this year in order to cater to families and children’s activities.

Children’s activities will take place from 4 to 8pm on Saturday and will include such events as a community quilt, puppets from Pittsburgh lending library, button making, and more.

In addition, Art All Night will provide live performances, DJ performances, opportunities to create art on-site, and a blend of visual art on display for everyone to observe over a 24-hour period.

One of those artists is Coca Flan. Art All Night is Flan’s first big event as an artist and she is thrilled to showcase her work.

“Prior to this, I’ve been stuck in a studio, really just feeling everything out and finding myself as an artist. I can’t wait to show everyone what I’ve created, Flan said”.

Both participation and attendance is free to everyone and is located in the former Iron City Brewery on Liberty Avenue. Beginning at 4pm on Saturday, events will conclude at 2pm on Sunday.

If you are to participate, you may submit one piece of artwork. Online artist registration is available at www.artallnight.org where artists submitting any work must show a photo ID both during registration and pickup. All work must be ready to be displayed in some fashion. Onsite registration takes place on Saturday, April 30, from 10am to 2pm, and art pickup is Sunday, May 1 from 2:30pm to 5:30 pm.

If you wish to submit artwork, volunteer, or for additional information, visit www.artallnight.org.
