You might have missed Yard Art Day which was on Monday/Labor Day and had residents all over the Charlotte area putting art in their front yard in effort to celebrate the arts and spark conversations in communities.
Once Kannapolis Arts learned about Yard Art Day, we put up some art and ended up having a small cookout, totally unplanned, as a result of the project, developed by Deborah Triplett Photography. We will be working with Deborah Triplett over the next few months to start planning for homes from Cabarrus County and Kannapolis to be included in next year’s line up.
Kannapolis Arts will be HEAVILY involved in helping promote Yard Art Day for Labor Day 2015, so start thinking about what are you would like in your yard next year.
This is also open to PERFORMANCE arts with some yard art organizers having live music, dance, poetry, theater and more in their yards.
Join their community Facebook page at the link below and start thinking about Yard Art Day 2015. Cabarrus County did not have an official presence in the event this year, with no one signing up in advance to be listed on a map that showcased all of the 2014 Yard Art Day participants.
Kannapolis Arts will be promoting the next yard art day and we will have an event invite for Cabarrus County participants next year. I’d love to have more than 100 yards from Cabarrus County participate, and know if we spread the word, a bunch of Kannapolis residents will be ready for Yard Art Day 2015.

The Yard Art Day art project invites everyone to celebrate their creative spirit by displaying or performing their own works of art.
