What is REACH?
The REACH Festival is a multi-city exhibition showcasing local and national contemparary artists working in a variety of non-traditional formats. REACH promotes visibility, aims to bridge the arts and spaces in neighboring cities, and encourages collaborative experimentation. The event also invites community members to participate in experiencing an array of contemporary art practices that are exhibited in a variety of traditional, nontraditional, and underutilized spaces throughout participating cities. The festival kicks off on April 6 and goes throughout May.
REACH Fest Day
With over 30 artist installations and exhibitions, a series of events are scheduled for REACH Fest Day on April 13.
