Virtual First Friday Art Trail Returns for May, So Support Your Local Artists
Goodness, how I miss Lubbock's legendary First Friday Art Trail. The beautiful, eclectic art and venues, the street food, the beer, and always running into 900 people you love. Honestly, I crave it maybe more than any other social interaction.
FFAT is going virtual again for the month of May. Here's how it works, and how YOU can be a part of it:
1. How's it work?We're encouraging artists all over Lubbock to post their art across social media this Friday using the hashtag #VirtualFirstFriday so that we can all virtually enjoy and support local art together, as we have done downtown for years and years.This Friday, [May 1st]! Post your works of art, music, and films all day for the public to enjoy in the evening (rain or shine, guess we're online!) Don't forget to tag each piece/post with #VirtualFirstFriday for others to see!2. Where's this thing at? We can't go anywhere.Wherever hashtags are found! Jump from "gallery" to "gallery" across Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, searching #VirtualFirstFridayLBK to see local art from all over the area!3. Why is this happening?The pandemic?
