Waverly Wall Art Event

In order to promote the grand opening, the Waverly Walls Art Park will be hosting a festival to support our artists. This festival will allow local artists to compete under three separate genres; Street Art, Realists, and Junior Artists. The various categories within each genre will allow people from all artistic backgrounds to compete. The artists will have five hours to complete their masterpieces. During this time, members of the community will be able to watch the artistic processes of the artists as well as witness a few exhibition artists throughout the day. Additionally, food trucks, vendors, and non-competing artists will be present to provide for the community and show their work. We will also have a 40ft wall open to the public to try their hand at “tagging”. Once time is called on the artists, judges will then visit each contestant’s work to decide on the winners. First, Second, and Third place will be awarded to the top contestants in each category. But the festival doesn’t end here. After the award ceremony, the auction will begin. Each contestant’s work will be auctioned off to the public. This gives the community yet another chance to support our artists and take home a piece of the festival to commemorate the memorable experience.
A portion of these proceeds will go to the Humphrey’s County Humane Society and the construction of “The Walls Art Park”.

If it's called a Waverly event, why not have it in downtown Waverly?
