5th Annual Rockin' in Quartzsite in full swing!

5th Annual Rockin’ in Quartzsite!
A Celebration of the Arts – Quartzsite Style!

Dec. 4, 2013 - Quartzsite, AZ –Proud Neighbors of Quartzsite (PNQ) invites the public to a most unique Public Art Event, called “Rockin’ in Quartzsite! A Celebration of the Arts”.

Quartzsite is known worldwide for its rocks and shows. On Dec. 8, 2009, Acting Mayor Wes Huntley, proclaimed Quartzsite, Arizona, the Rock Capital of the World. Expanding on this popular theme, local and regional artists transformed simple pieces of flagstone slabs into one-of-a-kind “Rock Art Pieces”. Rockin' in Quartzsite Public Art Event is held through March 7th, 2014. 

Local businesses sponsor Rock Art Pieces for the busy winter season. Locals and visitors alike will find themselves looking for the Rock Art Pieces throughout town, using a “Rockin’ in Quartzsite” Map published in Desert Messenger, bringing folks from one end of town to the other. At each location, people can vote for their favorite Rock Art Piece for the People’s Choice Award!

Then as part of The GRAND Gathering, PNQ will hold a live “Rock Auction” Saturday, March 8, 2014 to find permanent homes for the “Rock Art Pieces” and the People’s Choice Award will be announced. The Auction will take place at Quartzsite Town Park during The GRAND Gathering Senior Fair events. 

This event benefits local organizations, businesses, and the Quartzsite community! Come to the Rock Capital of the World and see what’s going on! Be sure to save the date March 8th, 2014 for The GRAND Gathering Senior Fair and Rock Auction!

Proud Neighbors of Quartzsite is established to help provide benefits to local charities and non-profit organizations by promoting the community of Quartzsite, and surrounding areas, through quality local celebrations!
