Virtual Participation Still Possible HERE >>

About the Event:

Arts Alive is a community arts event dedicated to raising the visibility of working artists in our city and region. Each summer we bring together creatives (artists, writers, performers, and musicians) to share their studio processes and their artwork. We have featured ceramicists, jazz musicians, print makers, glass artists, jewelers, poets, and more in Arts Alive!

Our 3rd Annual Arts Alive has gone virtual! You can interact online through panels, recorded and live events, making your own art with one of the artists, social media, and more! Bring Arts Alive from the plaza to your home this year and join us in discovering more artists, more music, more poetry, and more art. This is a great opportunity to grab a drink, eat some food and of course, watch, make, and participate!
