Slammin’ Good Times @ The HMF 2011

Here are some of my favorite photos from the HMF this past weekend. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect since this was the first festival Folklabel has participated in. It was really a great learning experience just getting out there and having fun with it. I met lots of great people and saw many talented artists. The mobile food vendors there were fantastic, particularly the food from The Pickle! Thanks to everyone that came out to support the event!

Without further adieu… check out the photos of the experience!

Illuminate The Future & HMF 2011

This Saturday, November 12 I’ll be out at The Hijacking Music Festival from 3PM – ? at The Goat Farm (near Atlantic Station in downtown Atlanta). If you’re in town, be sure to stop by and say Hi. The HMF is is a one day event featuring some of Atlanta‚Äôs most talented local musical and visual artists.

This year’s theme is GLOW, which underscores the idea of finding the “light” or passion inside everyone. The group hopes that attendees will come away feeling inspired to live more passionately. Folklabel is a primary sponsor of the event, which I got involved with a few months back to show support for the local art community. I’m really excited about supporting an event that combines multiple forms of artistic expression into one slammin’ good time.

I’ll be releasing a new design at the event called Illuminate The Future. The design has a little retro inspiration as the source of it’s power. Do you recognize it? These event shirts are printed on a high quality poly/cotton blend and will only be available for purchase at the event:

What is the Goat Farm?
The Goat Farm is a really cool, that’s what it is:

The Goat Farm Arts Center is one of the largest visual & performing arts centers in Atlanta. What was once an underutilized, mostly abandoned, historic site with no more than 20 artist studios went through a major expansion and was given new form in 2009.

Part of the expansion opened up 20,000 square feet dedicated to 4 new performance and exhibition halls and spaces. The Center now hosts classical & contemporary music concerts, theater performances, film screenings, contemporary dance performances and art exhibitions.

Also newly added, a cafe/library, an on-site organic farm, an education center, a 5000 square foot sprung floor for contemporary dance and newly built creative studios now occupied by more than 300 artists.

Here’s some photos I took on a recent visit:
