From now until the end of June we will post at least once a day with details on what you can experience at home during this pandemic year for Charleston’s annual festival of all arts. For 2020, FestivALL is when The Internet Becomes A Work Of Art. Every day we will bring you up to date on this year’s VirtuALL FestivALL, plus we will flash back to some of our video coverage from previous years, and I will dig into the archives for one post in the Monday Morning Art Exhibit, collecting some of my favorite pieces from the nearly fifteen years that I’ve been posting my original work here in PopCult.

On this third day you’ll want to tune in to The AIR for almost three hours of music from FestivALL, recorded in 2012 and 2011 (in that order, for some reason). You can jump over and tune in at the website, or you could just stay on this page, and listen to this exquisite little embedded radio player…

Tune into this week’s Radio Free Charleston at 10 AM and 10 PM Tuesday for a full show of music recorded locally, featuring the area’s finest musicians like Bob Thompson, Todd Burge, Andy Park, The Voodoo Katz, The Velvet Nomads, Comparsa and many more. A full lists of the artists on this episode can be found at the bottom of this post.

Other new FestivALL events for today include an Organ recital from First Presby at Noon, and a ballet class with The School of Charleston Ballet at 4 PM.

You can still take inThe Alban Arts Center’s Eugene O’Neill Project, which I told you about Friday.  You can also participate in the CAMC “Run For Your Life” virtual run/walk. The Show Your Pride window display contest is already underway, and you can vote HERE. Ice cream and the arts is also underway, and details for this coloring contest for kids can be found HERE.  The Virtual Art Fair will open on June 14th on the FestivALL website – check it regularly for the gallery and links to shop your favorite WV artisans this summer.

You can also vote on The Artbus, check out the Art-for-ALL Kids’ Juried Art Exhibition look into the “Faces of First Responders” Tribute Mural and teens can participate in Life: Unedited. FestivALL is off to a strong VirtuALL start!

The FestivALL Flashback

Today we’re bringing you the second and third parts of Radio Free Charleston‘s coverage of FestivALL from 2010.  In the first video you will find music from Brian and Nathan Diller, Evan Mack, Captain Crash and The Beauty Queen, Comparsa, and Alasha Al-Qudwah blended with art and animation from Joe Bolyard, Diane Martens, Leisha Angel, Kerry Bingham, and Frank and Rudy Panucci.

In the second video you can expect music by The VooDoo Katz, Miss Behavin’, Mark Scarpelli, The Sweet Adelines and more, plus art from ArtWalk and The Capitol Street Art Fair.

The Monday Morning Art Exhibit

Above you see a digital piece from June, 2009. “SpewTube2” was a variant of a piece I’d run earlier as Monday Morning Art, and was some kind of commentary on the then-new idea of a website where people upload their own videos. As we allknow, nothing ever came of the concept. This second version had a different color scheme and was repositioned in a way that almost made it distinct from the first version.
