Learn More About This Event
Art Seen Festival is a creative movement celebrating public art and mural making. This immersive arts weekend is presented by Public Arts Midland and Midland Area Community Foundation in an effort to bring more vibrancy to our community.
Art inspires us and propels us forward, giving a voice to diverse experiences, and people. Art is a catalyst for belonging, and provides an opportunity to both share our stories and to be an observer.
For 2021 we are linking arms with Midland Center for the Arts’ Summer Art Fair, Creative 360’s Community Mural and Art Speaks Festival events, and Mural Blast to bring people together in one incredible art-filled weekend.
June 5-6, 2021 will be the inaugural event of our mural festival. We are kicking off our first year with a beautiful large scale mural being painted live during the festival by local artists Jazzmyn Benitez, Dacia Parker, and their fantastic team! Observe and participate in this live mural creation on the rear parking lot wall of Little Forks Outfitters. We want you to be part of the creation process, so stop by and make your mark! The parking lot is accessible off McDonald St, between E Main St and E Larkin St.
We will be hosting an online tshirt design contest pre-event, that will be available for purchase and pick up at the event, thanks to the team at Red Threads. Stay tuned for more details on that. We also invite you to enjoy live acoustic musical performances from local musicians both evenings.
