Here we are today telling you about an “Artist On The Plaza” series that is just about over, and started back at the start of July. This one is being organized by the Springfield Area Arts Council, and it is a Tuesday and Thursday series taking place right outside of Café Moxo, one block over from us here downtown. From the Arts Council website:
For over thirty years, the Springfield Area Arts Council has hosted a summertime concert series called Artist on the Plaza. This year, the Arts Council will host the program with a new title, Artist on Adams, and a new location, outside Café Moxo. As in previous years, this series will consist of performances by local musicians and is free to the public. The hour-long concerts will be family-friendly and enjoyable for all.
The Arts Council acknowledges the Illinois Arts Council Agency for funding the concerts this year through an arts relief grant.
These events are free to the public, and happen right at noon, from 12:00 to 1:00 pm. The two remaining performances are Erica Eggers on Tuesday, August 4th and then Josie Lowder on Thursday, August 6th.
No, we are not anywhere near ready to begin hosting shows inside our own show space yet.
