Eau Gallie Arts District is busy preparing for 10 days of creativity and activity for all ages. Beginning Friday, November 24, the Anti-Gravity Project, where multiple murals will be installed, will kick off at Intracoastal Brewing Company at 6:30 pm. This mural festival will unite international, national and local artists and community volunteers in an explosion of creativity.
The festival ends Saturday, December 2 with an Anti-Block party happening from Noon – 10 pm. Highland Avenue will be closed to traffic, and the entire arts district will be abuzz with live mural painting, art demonstrations, music, gallery exhibitions, illustration battles, interactive games, a moon bounce and pop-up shops. This entire event is free and open to the public thanks to our title sponsor, Craig Technologies.
