Sled Island is happy to announce that the Visual Arts lineup for the 2013 festival edition is now finalized! This year we received the strongest and highest volume of submissions in our 7 years of existence. Together, with the support of ACAD, Sled Island plans to feature a variety of art openings starting on Tuesday, June 18th. These include the highly anticipated Poster Art Kick-Off Show at Milk Tiger and exhibitions at established independent galleries such as Avalanche, Haight Gallery, and UAS. We're also proud to announce the winner of the nationwide Etsy contest is Bryce Evans; his artwork will premiere at MOCA on Thursday, June 20th. The festival will also feature some unconventional art spaces and site-specific installations at music venues throughout the festival, adding to the festival-goers' overall experience. We'd also like to mention that Art at Sled Island is setting up in Victoria Park to create a series of commissioned murals and make use of a long forgotten hair salon by transforming it into Sled Island's first Contemporary Art Salon.
