Running Away to Join the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus

OK, so I’m not really running away to JOIN the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus even though I’d LOVE to hang with the clowns, but I am going... And, I want you to go, too!

I’ve got a FOUR pack of tickets to give to one lucky winner for the show on Thursday, February 17, at 7:30 p.m. at Phillips Arena in Atlanta.

Calling All Suwanee Artists!!!

Suwanee, GA--  (submitted by the City of Suwanee)

The City of Suwanee is looking for artists and other creative folks who’d like to have their artwork displayed on tree limbs and in other natural settings. The City is hosting a competition for artwork to be considered for its 2011 Art on a Limb program.

Art on a Limb is a month-long, award-winning initiative designed to celebrate and bring attention to the arts as well as the natural beauty of Suwanee’s parks. Through the program, two pieces of original artwork, especially created for the City of Suwanee, are placed along the Suwanee Creek Greenway and at other parks each day throughout the month of May. Those who find the art pieces get to keep them.

Past Art on a Limb pieces have included clay orbs, original paintings on small pieces of Suwanee’s old water tower, nature-themed ceramic tiles, vintage magnets, giclees of old and new Suwanee icons, and gourds painted to resemble birds.
