July 4th is a fun time for Elkland Arts center.
We love to put on shows to make you smile.
Help us create the parade for you or the characters for the Liberty Parade.
We would love to record your historical moment in time.
This year's theme for The Liberty Parade is "Justice for All..." Elkland and The Blackburn House will be hosting monthly conversations to explore issues of justice. Experiences shared in these community conversations will be incorporated into the parade. In this month's community conversation we will be exploring environmental justice in the rural setting of Todd, NC. We will watch Elkland Art Center's original documentary, "The Land Sustains Us" with thought provoking discussion to follow.
Please join us this Saturday, March 28th at 2pm
Blackburn’s Chapel in Todd, 3986 Todd Railroad Grade Road Todd, NC
Every year, we invite anyone and everyone to vision with us what the year's parade will become. Please join in this visioning of what "justice for all" might look like.

Elkland Art Center is pairing local businesses with designers to create wearable art out of trash!
Appalachian State University students, headed up by fashion coordinator, Kate Webb, are putting together another fabulous runway show. Students take landfill-bound material from local sponsoring businesses and organizations and make outrageous wearable art. Local artist and fashion maverick, Tommy Lee, will MC. You don't want to miss this!
A special bonus this year, the Watauga County Library Teen FANDOM Club will be making and presenting their own fashions as well.
Want to be involved? It's not too late. You could be a Paper Doll Sponsor! For just $100 you can support Elkland and get a unique work of art. We will take your trash and make a 2D work of art that will be displayed for the month of April at Bald Guy King Street. When the show is over, the art is yours to keep. We are also accepting items for silent auction. Please contact Lexie if interested.
Please support these generous lovers of community art!
