Art Lotto, First Friday

Art Lotto held it’s public art opening on First Friday at the Artful Dodger in downtown Harrisonburg, VA. With Thursday being a private celebration for artists, sponsors and judges, Friday was geared towards a fun-filled evening for families and children. In front of the Dodger we had a circus of activities including face painting, sidewalk chalk, a mini-manicure station and a coloring table with each of our top-level sponsors drawn up in coloring-book-form! Art Lotto portraits will be up on the Dodger walls through the month of August. Head on down and check it out!

Behind the Muse(s): Promo Shoot

On Sunday morning a few Lotto artists met in the parking lot beside Larkin Arts for a short and sweet promo shoot with Andy Vanhook of Appeal Productions. It was a showdown of sorts with weapons of mass…creation. It was a western-themed venture on the streets of downtown ‘Burg. We laughed, a lot. And we can’t wait to share the finished product. Stay tuned!
