The Artfields competition began in 2013 with a simple goal: honor the artists of the Southeast with a week’s worth of celebration in the heart of a traditional Southern small town, Lake City. The competition and exhibits offer $145,000 in cash prizes. Up to 400 works of art will be on display in locally owned venues, from renovated 1920s warehouses and professional art spaces to the library, history museum, Ronald E. McNair Life History Center, restaurants, and shops. We’ll start our day visiting some of the large exhibit locations together and then we will park downtown where everyone will have plenty of time to wander around Lake City, have lunch, and view the artwork. Departure time is 9 a.m. Lunch on your own. Activity Level 4.
