So earlier, we reported that Sparkcon 2012 would be held, for the first time, in the tres-artsy Warehouse District. Great idea, but it turns out that getting all the necessary streets closed in order to have room for all the various "Sparks" wasn't possible ... or at least not this year. Maybe in some future year.
Thus, this 7th edition (wow!) of Sparkcon will again be conducted on Fayetteville Street, which is where it all started and where, notwithstanding its amazing growth, all the sparks can still fly.
This news comes from our 2012 Indies Arts Award winner Sarah Powers, who manages Sparkcon along with her staff at the Visual Art Exchange.
Sparkcon 2012 is September 13-16.
That's the weekend after our 3rd annual Hopscotch Music Festival.
