2013 is the year to Celebrate the Arts in the City of Decatur. The Decatur Arts Festival celebrates 25 years with a special Community Art Project during the Festival and a 25th Anniversary Exhibit in the Old Courthouse. Decatur will launch Sidewalk Saturdays in April with musicians and artists lining the streets for interactive arts opportunities. New “artsy” bike racks are slated to go up this spring. There are several exciting art exhibits, gallery openings, and more planned for our galleries and shops.
Now we want to hear from you. What ideas do you have to Celebrate the Arts in Decatur in 2013? And, let us know if you have a special celebration already planned or you want to help with the celebration in any way. Post your great idea below.
