Arts Alive! 2020


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 process and art with our larger community. We have featured ceramicists, jazz musicians, print makers, glass artists, jewelers, poets, and more participate in Arts Alive!

Our 3rd Annual Arts Alive has gone virtual! We will offer a number of ways to interact online through panels, recorded and live events, 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!
