24 Hours to Go

It’s that time of the year again to celebrate all the creative energy, brilliance, and fortitude of artists and performers from our own backyard in Ghostbird’s annual 24 Hour Festival!

Join us to cheer on our favorite local filmmakers, performers, musicians, and artists as they share their art on Sunday, February 27th, at The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in downtown Fort Myers. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and live performances begin at 7:00 p.m. This is a free event–our little gift to the community.

For those of you who wish to participate and not just attend, we invite you to give it a go. Artists of all types and ages are invited to create a work of art in 24 hours, based on some pretty wild prompts delivered by our own Barry Cavin. We don’t know how creative you can be in 24 hours, but we do know you’ll have so much fun you won’t even feel the sleep deprivation.

Cash awards of $500 will be given to best visual artwork, best video, best live performance, and best musical performance.

Remember, to participate, you must register, and we have limited slots available!  Click the link below to access our on-line registration and all guidelines. It is FREE to register.

If you cannot participate, please spread word among your artistic, performing friends and colleagues.

And if you have already registered, we look forward to seeing you on February 26th for the prompt session! And if you just simply wish to see the fruits of your friends’ labor, come join us for the Festival on March 1.
