Arts Alive!, Mobile's downtown arts festival, plans to continue to make "art happen" once again this spring. Scheduled for April 12, 13 and 14, 2013, the festival offers three days of varied artistic experiences and interactive and hands-on activities.
The hallmark of Arts Alive! since inception has been its multi-dimensional arts platform. Each festival showcases a wide selection of art genres – theater, film, visual, music, dance – all featuring local and regional talent.
Festival Chair, David Calametti explains: "Our overall goal is to create personal artistic experiences for everyone who comes out. We want to de-mystify art and stir the muse within each of us."
Arts Alive! takes place in the Cathedral Square Arts District in downtown Mobile. Festival hours are Friday, 5-9:30pm; Saturday 11-7pm and Sunday Noon-5pm. Admission is free for the entire festival.
