Greenville, South Carolina is one of my favorite cities in the world. This is largely due to vast amount of food, art, and music that this beautiful city has to offer. Every year, Greenville holds a festival called Artisphere that brings all my favorite activities together in one glorious weekend-long showcase of the best that the Upstate has to offer. This year, Artisphere will be taking place May 11th– 13th. Here are some of the incredible activities you can expect to happen during Artisphere, all of which can be found on Artisphere’s website.
The festival is called ARTisphere, so of course we must start by talking about some of the unbelievable artist that will be present at the festival.

The amazingly talented Brian Olsen will be doing a live painting every day of the festival. If you have never seen an artist do a painting live, it is actually one of the most incredible things you will ever see. As mesmerizing as it is, talent like this is the type of thing that makes me significantly less proud of my Pictionary skills. To make sure you do not miss any of Mr. Olsen’s performances make sure you check out the Artisphere performing art’s schedule.
Artisphere 2018 will be home to seemingly countless artist including: visual artist, performing artist, and even culinary artist. Some of these artists include: Kent Ambler, Will Armstrong, Amanda Bennett, and so many more which can be found in Artisphere’s list of visual artist. One of my personal favorites is Kent Ambler who does a lot of print work. You can find a video of him completing one of his miraculous works of art by clicking on his name above. Make sure not to miss out on this incredible talent and hey, maybe this is when you will finally get that massive self-portrait of you riding a horse into battle to go above your fire place that you have always wanted… or is that just me?
