Have you ever gone to any of the SparkCon events in Raleigh? If not, you don’t know what you are missing. SparkCon is hands down one of the coolest and most interesting events that happens in this city.
Looking for a more official explanation? According to their website “SparkCon is an interdisciplinary creativity, art & design festival produced by the non-profit creativity incubator, Visual Art Exchange, in Raleigh NC. SPARKcon 2014 will be the 9th annual event and happens Sept. 11-14 in downtown Raleigh”.
VanNess & Fellows has been attending SparkCon events for years to see thing like geekSpark with makerbots and 3D printers made out of materials you can purchase at a home improvement store, bazaarSpark for cool local wares, circusSpark to see crazy aerialist, or artSpark to see the chalk art decorating the streets downtown. We loved it so much we decided that we had to be a part of it!
VanNess & Fellows is hosting the artSpark main event in our gallery. Cool right? We think so. Not only are we hosting it, but we will have the exhibit in our gallery the entire month of September.
SparkCon is a great reason to get out and explore downtown, see new places, try new business and see the really interesting and awesome city we live in. We would love to see y’all out for the first friday artSpark opening (September 5th from 6-9) event at VanNess & Fellows. If you can’t make it to our event, make sure to go to at least one Spark. You never know, you may get a spark of inspiration.
