National Arts Drive

June 20 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

The National Arts Drive is an online & offline grassroots movement and fundraising campaign to bring awareness and financial support to local artists on a national scale.

On June 20, 2020, artists in select cities across the U.S, Canada and Mexico are encouraged to display, perform and showcase their creativity from driveways, balconies, windows, stoops, front lawns, or participating local small businesses (where applicable and safe) during a three-hour period.

Community supporters are invited to drive their city blocks and suburban streets to see, hear, and support the artists, performers, musicians, and designers living in their community from a safe distance.

The driving experience will be paired with a mobile website and interactive map where drivers can engage with the artist and support them from a distance through three main avenues:

  1. Like, follow and share their work via social media

  2. Donate directly to artists through their chosen mobile paysite

  3. Visit a participating artist’s online store or website for a future purchase

There is no charge for artists to participate or to be listed on The National Arts Drive map.

Though we are encouraging Drivers to support artists as they approach installations and performances, there is no cost to the community drivers to engage with the experience.
