This spring, Pocket Productions is all about making your everyday life more wonderful than it already is. Here are some highlights.
Make sure you check out Buskers. We're highlighting an awesome performer or performance group every week through the first week of June. We posted a new video today of our last edition of Buskers.
Do you like Playing After Dark? I thought so. Do you like Playing After Dark for free in the park with artists from across the nation creating amazing works in your presence? Even better, right? Mark your calendar: On May 11, Riverfront Park will overflow with artists for the opening of our statewide series of environmental art: Art on the Trail.
Did you know that ArtRageous, Pocket Productions' spontaneous art series, was inspired by Improv Everywhere? This exciting public performance group based out of NYC was started by a Columbia, SC, native. On April 5, the founder, Charlie Todd, caused a scene in Columbia, SC.
Did you know that the first Playing After Dark event showcased the talents of eight local artists and had 65 audience members? Great things start small.
Pocket Productions has showcased the artwork of over 50 local visual artists, reaching over 10,000 residents throughout the Midlands.
Pocket Productions has worked with over 30 organizations, including the Columbia Museum of Art, the Columbia Classical Ballet, the SC Philharmonic, and the Palmetto Conservation Foundation.
Did you know that the first ArtRageous event was funded by the Arts Institute and the Cultural Council of Richland and Lexington Counties? Since this initial event, we have brought over 20 spontaneous events to the City of Columbia and Richland County that engage the general public with art.
The 2012-2013 season is sponsored by the City of Columbia, the Cultural Council of Richland and Lexington Counties and the South Carolina Arts Commission. Thank you for your generous support!
