College Hill Arts Festival 2017
on Monday, May 29, 2017
What’s new for this year’s College Hill Arts Festival? A new website! Be sure to check out the latest and greatest at CollegeHillArtsFestival.ORG as the festival prepares for their 39th annual event, June 16 and 17.
The College Hill Arts Festival is a juried event of 75 artists who are chosen by a panel of three independent jurors. Under the shade trees of the University of Northern Iowa campus, visitors will find innovative and exceptional works of art by artists representing 20 states.
Be prepared to browse through display after display of fine art at this year’s festival with original works of art in pottery, ceramics, wood, jewelry, metal sculpture, painting, photography and glass.
The festival began in 1979 under the leadership of Hugh Pettersen. Since then, the festival has continued to grow and improve. The festival has been named to Sunshine Artist magazine’s list of ‘100 Best Fine Arts & Design Shows’ in the United States and the festival has won the Cedar Valley Tourism Award for Event of the Year.
The College Hill Arts Festival is a community event with student activities (including the Young Art Collectors Gallery) and participation by community groups who offer activities and information about their organizations.
Music on the Performing Arts Stage also complements the creative atmosphere. This year, their lineup of talent includes Amelia & Melina, Ally & The Gators, Blame Not the Bard, Karla Ruth, The Enablers, The OK Factor and more.
So stroll the “streets” of art, pick up lunch in the food court and sit back and enjoy the music. Even the kids will request a day at the festival as they get to enjoy hands-on creative activities. As always, there is no admission charge and parking is free. Be sure to visit their new webpage and Facebook page for more information.
