This is a biggy for me. Something that I, as a board member, have been all but consumed with the last several weeks. Celebrate the Arts is in its 52nd year and its going to have quite a few firsts on top of the already terrific fine artists populating the park with their art.
Celebrate the Arts is held in Monrovia’s Library Park from 10AM – 6PM both Saturday and Sunday this weekend. There will be a lot of firsts at this show that we are really excited about on top of our usual host of Food Trucks, live music, extremely talented artists. Among our firsts this event:
- ChalkFest – a competitive street art event with Lori Escalera as our celebrity judge.
- Children’s Chalk Experience -designed for the 12 and under set to experiment with chalk
- Featured Artist Elizabeth Butterfield…her collage work is simply stunning
- The first appearance by students from Mt. Sierra College (11 fine artists and 2 chalk artists)
- The first appearance by 18 artists new to MAFA
- Glass Blowing demonstrations
- TIKI Bobbleheads from artist Rick Kess
- Authors exhibition with live book signing
- Photographer Author Stephen McCarthy will be selling his images, autographing his books including his newest “The Extra Virgin Spy Club”
