The St. Tammany Art Association and Covington businesses, galleries and restaurants present Spring for Art, an annual celebration of the visual, performing and culinary arts, on Saturday, April 11 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The free event showcases new works and one-night-only shows at Covington's art galleries and dozens of downtown shops, all by regional and nationally-renowned artists. Enjoy an evening of live music at multiple locations (indoors and out), art demonstrations, dance and other special performances, hands-on art activities, dining in dozens of locations, and shopping at couture fashion boutiques, antique and home furnishings stores, and more.
A highlight of the event is the popular Mix Masters’ Competition with local bartenders dazzling crowds with their innovative cocktails. Audiences will vote on their favorites, and a new Mix Masters’ Champion will be crowned, with the top mixers taking home cash prizes.
