Head To The Gates – The Artisphere Gates!

One week away!

Artisphere will be here next weekend – and it’s FULL CAPACITY! Not to mention FREE!

Artisphere has a schedule jam packed with activities for everyone this year. In addition to shopping the works of 100+ local and national artists, attendees can enjoy live music, art demos, crafts + activities for the kids, and more. 

Before you head through the festival gates this year, you might want to check out some of the activities/exhibits that will be there this year ?

? GE Artist Row: Admire the work of 135 visual artists — and maybe score the perfect gift for Mother’s Day (or for yourself). Want a sneak peek? See all participating artists.

? Truist Arts and Drafts

New this year, Arts and Drafts invites guests to grab a beer on Broad St. while watching live, large-scale painting. Meet the muralists.

? Live music + performing arts

This year, Artisphere is offering a vast range of live music, theatre, and dance performances, from the WYFF 4 Main Stage to the Furman University Performance Plaza. Check out the full schedule. (New + notable this year: Headliners Aztec Sun and Ali McGuirk — as well as the High Divers, who were originally booked in 2020.)

? Bank of America Art Lab

The Art Center of Clemson will be offering free, hands-on, artist-led demonstrations throughout the festival where attendees can learn to make handcrafted earrings, try wheel throwing with clay, create macrame plant hangers + more. See workshops + sign up. (Class size is limited with classes available on a first come, first served basis, so be sure to sign up early.)

? Kidsphere 
Spinx Kidsphere Arts & Crafts
invites budding artists to create their own original artwork, while Legacy Early College Kidsphere Music will lead children through musical instrument + theatre costume exploration, with parades happening Friday at 3:30 p.m., Saturday at 12:45 p.m. and 5:15 p.m., and Sunday at 2:45 p.m. See activities + locations.*

Take note of the name – Artisphere is all about ART – and this is one of the most popular festivals here in Greenville. We’re so glad it’s back in full swing, and I hope you’ll be able to partake in this year’s event!

This really is a great event, one that is so popular in our area. You don’t want to miss it!
