[ARCHIVED] Art Along The Rogue Will Return in October!


GRANTS PASS – The City of Grants Pass Committee on Public Art (CoPA) will present the 2021 Art Along The Rogue Oct. 1-3, as the popular event returns to Grants Pass after having to be cancelled last year due to COVID restrictions.

At their Monday, June 28 workshop, the Grants Pass City Council voiced unanimous support for the return of the event under the CoPA umbrella and committed to providing partial financial sponsorship of the event with a minimum of $10,000.

A subcommittee of members of CoPA has been delegated by committee chair Sulaiha McDougall to serve as administrators of the event. The Art Along The Rogue Committee will soon be seeking additional sponsors and volunteers to help support and facilitate planned activities. 

City Manager Aaron Cubic has assigned Information Coordinator Steven Sabel to work with committee members as their city staff point of contact. Sabel assisted the city with coordinating last year’s Holiday Plaza festivities in downtown.

This year’s Art Along The Rogue event is expected to include many of the features and attractions that have made the traditional event so popular with local residents, including sponsored chalk artists, local street artists, and chalk art squares available to the public for demonstrating their own skills.

In addition, event organizers hope to open the event to other forms of art displays and interactive activities, such as plein air painting, watercolor painting, jewelry making, pottery, sculptures, music, dance, and spoken word performances.

Additional information will soon be available at Potential sponsors, volunteers, and vendors can contact Sabel at (541)450-6011.
