Downtown artist and mom Chris Pruitt invites you to this free, family-friendly event where children, young, and not so young, are encouraged to make art and make forts. Families are encouraged to bring their best fort-making materials, supplies, and skills. 

This fourth annual event originated because of the recovery from a concussion. Chris tells what happened to her daughter Eva: “When Eva was 9, she got a concussion. For her recovery: no TV, no reading, no movies, no iPad, no video games, no bright lights. Her parents needed to find activities she could do while she recovered. Since parents Chris and Michael Pruitt are both artists, they encouraged her to make artwork. Eye Lounge Gallery had a project room that was open so Eva and her family collaborated on an idea for a show. Her mom wanted to create some sort of bubble wrap, padded environment for her… soft with dim lights and a feeling of safety. Eva came up with the idea to build a fort, which they did and had so much fun doing.”

Now the entire Pruitt family wants to build forts and draw with anyone who wants to join them on February 11.
