The Return of NOLA – Night of the Living Arts! Begins in Lancaster, SC – Oct. 25, 2013

October 14, 2013

lancaster-county-council-for-the-arts-logo

Do you know what darkly mysterious things happen when a passel of downtown businesses and agencies join together in the creation of an infectious artistic evening? Why, it’s the monster of all things art that is known as NOLA, of course – Night of the Living Arts! The Lancaster County Council of the Arts’ annual “after-dark” arts crawl will overtake downtown Lancaster, SC, beginning at 5pm on the evening of Oct. 25, 2013. Known for its appeal to adults bedecked in eerie and imaginative costumes, the event offers lots of strangely peculiar enjoyment in support of arts programs for the entire County.

Begin your cryptic journey at the historic Springs House (if you recognize it on this night of devilishly disguised downtown “haunts”) where mystifying music with JRUX and twisted tunes with FONZIE will draw you inside the Carn-Evil tent to purchase admission tickets and maps to the participating venues. Creeping down Catawba Street, the doors of Picture Perfect and Cakes & More by Pierre will open to reveal displays of local artists’ works, sparkling gems fit for a pirate’s bounty, and tempting sweet treats. Crawl further to Edwards Scott House on Elm to partake in suspiciously delicious food and drink, while being mesmerized by a special photography exhibit.

Wend your way to Williams Street where Donny Pines & The Bonediggers’ live tunes will draw you into Gallery 102. Slither your way to Main Street and into Charley’s Café for more goodies awaiting your arrival as you peruse the pottery on display. Lumber along until you find your way on Gay Street to Bob Doster’s Backstreet Studio, where art-carved pumpkins light the way to the secret garden alive with indie-rock by Chris Compton and the Ruby Brunettes. Tear yourself away to creep back up to Main Street for a “wild-style” at Downtown Craze and get your special effects make-up completed with KATTS at Hospice and Community Care Resale Store. Now that your horrific look is complete, enter the double-doors of the Native American Studies Center to see traditional native artwork being created. Cross over to Cafe Taylors for a little live reggae with Justin Hatfield before returning to See Lancaster’s digs at 201 West Gay Street, the Carn-Evil Springs House to find live theatre with Community Playhouse, costume contests, prizes, live music, and more food and drink.

For a paltry $25 per person ($20 for LCCA members), you and your favorite zombie team will enjoy a full evening of the arts and ensure the arts are kept alive and well on Night of the Living Arts and beyond!!

For tickets and information, contact the Lancaster County Council of the Arts at 803-285-7451 or check the website at (www.lccarts.net). See Lancaster is one of thirteen agencies and businesses participating in the annual downtown arts crawl. For more information regarding See Lancaster, contact Cherry Doster 803/289-1492 or e-mail to (cdoster@lancastercitysc.com). Information can be found at (www.lancastercitysc.com).
