THE STREETZ FOR FAMILIES

By Lynn Peisner

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

If you’re walking near Pixels Café and Walter’s Shoes this fall, don’t be afraid if a man with a bloody hand steps out of a storefront and beckons you to be his blood brother.

That would be Nathan Sharratt, one of dozens of artists the City of Atlanta’s Office of Cultural Affairs is hosting during a large-scale temporary public art program that opens Friday with a free outdoor music, food and drink street party.

Elevate/Art Above Underground is responsible for the giant murals painted on several downtown buildings, but it’s also behind artists like Sharratt, who use bizarre performance art to make bold and subversive statements through fake blood, moving mounted sculptures, a 20-person dance team and poetry readings.

More traditional artists’ media will be on display through Oct. 30, with performances taking place at various times in locations sprinkled around Martin Luther King Drive, Woodruff Park, Five Points MARTA Station and Central Avenue.

THE STREETZ FOR FAMILIES

August 27-28, 2011

I used to be such the outdoorsy type. Not sure how the fiance will feel about this event, but this looks cute! The 5th Annual Big Haynes Creek Wildlife Festival held on the Grand Prix Plaza at the Georgia International Horse Park  is scheduled for August 27-28, 2011 and will be open to the public from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. each day.  The 2011 festival was selected as a Top 20 Event in the Southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society for the month of August.

The admission fee is $5.00 per person (children ages 4 and under are free) and tickets can be purchased at the gate.  Parking is free. That’s not a bad deal at all! Fido and Whiskers have to stay home though. There are no pets allowed.

My little munchkins may be a bit small for it, but The Wildlife Festival promotes understanding and enjoyment of the outdoors while featuring animal exhibits, guest speakers, hands-on demonstrations, children’s activities, stage performances, arts and crafts. Check it out!
