FRESH Fun Day 2016

With Artspace receiving over 130 submissions for FRESH: New Works by North Carolina Artists,  we were overjoyed to host the FRESH Fun Day this past weekend. Artists, families, and passersby alike were welcome to stop by, observe the art on display, vote for their favorite piece(s), and create their very own works of art to take home. Check out some of the pictures from the event, and don’t forget to vote for your favorite FRESH artwork in our People’s Choice contest on Facebook!
