May marks two years of Deer Bear Wolf supporting and promoting Atlanta arts, music, and literature. To celebrate this momentous milestone, Deer Bear Wolf has put together a weekend of art and fun May 13 & 14.
The weekend kicks off with the Deer Bear Wolf Second Birthday Bash, taking place Friday, May 13 at the Downtown Players Club. The Birthday party will include an art exhibition curated by Katie Troisi featuring work from Amandine Drouet, Andrew Catanese, Angela Bortone, Anna Spence, Jordan Stubbs, Lacey Longino, Llucy Llong, Marcy Starz, Mike Black, Olivia Rado, Rebecca Cornwall, Sara Santamaria, Wihro Kim, William Downs, and William Mize. The bash will also include musical performances from Grand Prize Winners From Last Year and Dot.s.
On Saturday, May 14, Deer Bear Wolf debuts its first installment of From the Ashes: A Phoenix Fest Pop-Up Event. Phoenix Festival is an annual event that celebrates the Arts in Atlanta while raising awareness for underutilized spaces. To continue in the support of local artists, Deer Bear Wolf will be hosting pop-up events leading up to Phoenix Festival 2016. This first Phoenix Fest Pop-Up features live murals by Monica Alexander, Protozoasaur, Cold Arted, and sQuishiepuss, an installation by Tiny Doors ATL, and an artist market. The Pop-Up takes place from 1pm to 5pm at 581 Rankin Street, right by the Historic Fourth Ward Park. Phoenix Fest Pop-Ups are free with RSVP.
Deer Bear Wolf is also offering a special deal for the weekend. At both events, if you preorder a copy of Deer Bear Wolf Magazine Issue #4, you’ll get a free copy of Issue #3 (while supplies last). The fourth installment of the award-winning arts and lit magazine is curated by Matt DeBenedictis (Head Honcho of Deer Bear Wolf Press) and Jonathan Corrigan-Odden (Curatorial Assistant, Modern and Contemporary Art at High Museum of Art, Atlanta), and will be available early this summer.
