FCAC Managing Director Caitlin Rhea said the collaboration is a great way to incorporate art into the cityscape.
"The fountain hasn't worked for several years, it was just a little patch of grass with a concrete circle," Rhea said. "The artists had a lot of meetings to create something cohesive, but also showcase their talents and styles. It's been really fascinating to watch." A project that big and exciting warranted a cause for celebration. Following FCAC's previous Foo Foo events such as the Day of the Dead celebration and pop-up glass blowing demonstrations, Rhea said they wanted to do something that would engage the community. "We are a community based art center for all ages and abilities," said Rhea. It's a partnership that helps promote the work of the art center and the talents of Pensacola, said Rhea. "We would not have the budget for this without the Foo Foo Fest grant," she added. "That would have been a separate fundraiser, which can be a roadblock. Foo Foo Fest helps make the city a more vibrant place. It helps put Pensacola on the map." Planning and coordinating a full 24-hour event is no easy feat, but Rhea is looking forward to Art-A-Thon. The best part is seeing the reactions from folks who walk through the FCAC doors. "Even in this visual culture we can still give people something new," she said.
