The Thursday Night Kickoff will take place on May 9 from 5:00 – 9:00 pm. Attendees will preview Deck Art and also Shades Detroit, a professional graffiti artist, will be joining us on Fourth Street for a live mural creation both nights. Kids can also partake in a craft activity located outside 308 Main from 5:00 – 8:00 pm.

Deck Art 2019 will continue Friday, May 10 with the official Competition and Exhibition Crawl from 5:00 – 9:00 pm. The Crawl will begin at any participating business where attendees and artists can pick up the official “Crawl” maps. Artists aren't informed of their artwork's placement, so they must “crawl” from business to business until their artwork is found. Check out Shades Detroit creating a live mural on Fourth Street and the kids’ craft will continue outside of 308 Main.

A panel of judges from Paint A Miracle Rochester will select one winner from the five categories – elementary school, middle school, high school, college, and adult. Winning decks will be identified with a special ribbon.
