International Market And More Series Returns Nov. 28 For Artists Sunday

Monday, November 22, 2021

The International Market and More Series returns this Sunday for a special Artists Sunday in Cooper’s Alley, 14 E. 7th St. in Chattanooga, from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. In addition to the international street food, the market is celebrating Artists Sunday, a national alternative to Black Friday, by showcasing the work and performances from Chattanooga’s arts community.

There is no cost to attend. Attendees will enjoy a variety of food, live music, temporary henna tattoos and plenty of handcrafted items that are perfect for gift giving, organizers said. 

Kate Warren, executive director for Art 120 says, “There’s real excitement when you get art into the streets, it interrupts formality and invites people to play along, bringing public spaces to life.” 

Also at the International Market, guests will experience a wonderland with larger-than-life puppets from Playful Evolving Monsters, Art 120’s art cars and live music to enchant children of all ages. Live performances include: South African/American performer Joel Karabo Elliot, Movement Arts Collective and Wanyä. Throughout the day, Rhyme N Chatt will be hosting a poetry art car build. Guests can lend a word, phrase, image or feeling to place onto the car. Art car poems will be compiled and read aloud throughout the event.

While this event is free and open to the public, Art 120 encourages attendees to register online at: tinyurl.com/artistsundaymarket by Wednesday, so vendors know how much food to prepare.

To stay up to date with the International Market and More schedule, follow Art 120 on Facebook @art120, and on Instagram @art120chatt.

Cultural partners include: River City Company, ArtsBuild, Reagan Outdoor, Tennessee Arts Commission, Culture Philanthropy, Culture Chatt, Soundcorps and The Lyndhurst Foundation.
