Party in the Passageways


Experience new art and technology installations featured in four downtown alleyways at Party in the Passageways. The community is invited to check-in at 5:30 pm in Miller Plaza, where maps of the exhibit locations will be distributed. In addition to the installation designers being on site to explain the creative concept behind each installation, there will be activities in each alleyway to showcase how these urban spaces can be animated in the future through art, culture and community engagement. Activities include a community yarn bombing project hosted by the Chattanooga Public Library, buskers performing live music from SoundCorps, a performance by the Chattanooga Ballet and opportunities to ride Art 120’s art bikes. Attendees can also catch a show from Chattanooga bluegrass icons Randy Steele and Friends in the last alley on Broad Street from 6-8:30 p.m. Local beer from Odd Story Brewing Company, Hutton and Smith Brewing Company and Chattanooga Brewing Company will be featured in the alleyways along with light hors d’oeuvres from The Bitter Alibi.
