The 15th annual Art All Night happens this Saturday in Lawrenceville, this time, at the new location of 40th and Willow St. at the Willow Street Development. According to their website, “Art All Night is a grassroots event staged by an all-volunteer crew. A joyful celebration of the arts and community, the show grows in popularity each year, bringing thousands of people from all over the region into Lawrenceville. In 2011 Art All Night Lawrenceville featured work by 1280 artists and was attended by over 12,000 guests.” We went! This event is sure to be a blast, and best of all, it’s ALL NIGHT LONG, so no matter what your schedule, you can fit it in. Another cool thing to note is that anyone’s welcome. There’s no judges, no censorship, no fees to display your art and no fees to attend. The event requires roughly 200 volunteers to operate, so we’d like to give a big thank you to all the individuals responsible for pulling this off year after year.
