Duluth Makes a Huge Splash through the Arts
Two artistic events to run simultaneously

Duluth, Georgia – Duluth continues to lead in pushing the Arts throughout the community and residents have fallen for the City’s creative and artistic flare. Duluth will make a huge splash with not one, but two events that are artistic in nature.  

Barefoot in the City, which is an 8-day event, will feature different forms of art throughout the City. The event kicked off on the first day of Barefoot in the Park Fine Arts Festival, May 9th, with the unveiling of the Public Art Master Plan, which is a guiding document created for Duluth’s rich visual and performing arts heritage. It took place in the Shifting Scapes exhibit.

Throughout the week there will be lots to see and experience such as: colorful tree and light pole wrappings, movable art to Tweet about, opportunities to learn art techniques and more. The global art project seen in 60 countries-“Before I Die”-will be in Duluth. Residents will get the opportunity to join the international phenomenon and express their goals publically. “Barefoot in the City” runs from May 9th-May 16th. Attached you’ll find the breakdown for the week. 

The culmination of both events is just one way the City of Duluth continues to provide residents with the opportunity to learn, grow and enjoy the arts in an ever-growing community where the ARTS take precedence.
