Join Art on Alberta and Alberta Main Street for the opening night festivities at Tannenbaum Madness!
Every year, families and art lovers are invited to celebrate the season with their favorite Alberta Street merchants. Northeast Alberta Street will again be alive and bustling with festive lights, gallery openings, and plenty of restaurants serving some of the best food in town. Tannenbaum Madness happens from 4:00 to 8:00 pm on the Friday after Thanksgiving.
Art on Alberta will be collaborating with Alberta Main Street— a local organization dedicated to developing Alberta Street as a vibrant, creative, and sustainable commercial district serving residents and visitors to our community. We will be hosting a decorating table at Alberta Main Street’s office at 1722 Northeast Alberta Street, where ornament-making materials will be provided for kids and adults to decorate Alberta’s DIY (Decorate It Yourself) Tree on display in the front window of Alberta Main Street. There will be plenty of materials to create ornaments to take home, too! Special thanks to SCRAP for helping us provide materials for this event!
Our mobile art gallery, RED ROVER, will be festively transformed into an enormous ornament for the occasion. This trailer is used as an installation space, a gallery, a tool for art education, and a vehicle for bringing art to the community in an unconventional way. The gallery may be seen in front of Alberta Main Street on Friday, November 25, 2011 from 4:00 to 8:00 pm. Thereafter, it will be located on Northeast 19th Avenue between Going and Wygant Streets until December 28th.
