Art on Easy Street is slated for Saturday

The Art on Easy Street summer art festival returns to Salisbury this Saturday, June 21.
A part of the 200 block of North Lee Street and the entire 100 block of East Liberty Street will be closed to allow room for the festival. “Last year we were not able to accommodate all the artists who wanted to participate and we were sorry to see that happen,” said Shirl Hull, event chair. “With the expanded space, we are able to have more artist booths, more food booths and more space for people to move around.”
The festival is taking to the streets in other ways as well. John Hammarback of Winston-Salem, music major at Stony Brook in N.Y., will be strolling along Main and Innes streets, playing the bagpipes to call attention to the festival and to celebrate “Day of the Arts. “Parking is available for the festival in the Rowan County lot across Main Street and in the Rowan Investment gravel lots on the corners of Kerr and Lee streets.
Art on Easy Street will begin at 10 a.m. and end at 5 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public.
For more information, call The Rowan Arts Council at 704-638-9887 or e-mail rac@rowanarts.org.
Art on Easy Street is made possible through Rowan Investment Company, F&M Bank and the North Carolina Arts Council.
