The Best Kept Secret in the Best Small Town
We know something you don’t know. We know about a sweet little art festival that started as a way to give a sweet little town a facelift. Then this sweet little art festival grew into an “Epic Southern Artfest”. That’s right. I said it. EPIC.
Artfields is, in our not-so-humble opinion, one of the best kept secrets in this beautiful state. With a tagline like “Epic Southern Artfest”, it leads you to wonder if this is (another) misuse of the word epic. Well, its the perfect word to describe their life-changing (4) cash prizes totaling $100,000 including a People’s Choice award. With money raised at the festival, the town is progressively being restored, giving new life to Main Street, Lake City.
It’s whooping 10-day debut last year drew a crowd of 22,000 from all over the U.S. and had an economic impact of $5.4 milion. Pretty good for a town of 6,700.
Last year, we had the pleasure of working on the brand identity and website. This year, we update the “new look” of the brand and optimized the website (more to come on that later).
You may find/see some of these in your nearest art gallery/artist supply store/store window. We hope you pick it up. We hope you submit an entry. We hope you win. We hope it changes your life.
