Celebrate the arts at Slippery Rock

April 10, 2012 by  

The 11th annual Kaleidoscope Regional Arts Festival will take place at the Slippery Rock University campus from April 15-29. The mission of the festival organizers is

“to bring free or low cost, quality arts programming to an underserved region.”

The festival will feature everything including performing arts such as dance, theater and music, visual arts such as art and film and literary art such as lectures. The opening day celebration which features live jazz music and a preview of the Frederick Douglass Sixty Second Lecturer Series will take place on April 19 on the Quad.

The Children’s Day Festival will take place on April 21. It will feature balloons, music, food, the Slippery Rock Elementary Fifth Grade Dancers and arts and crafts. The festival will also feature the music of Hal Walker and Brian Harper.

Other special events during the Kaleidoscope Festival are a concert by Hal Walker on April 22, the Third Coast Film Festival on April 26, the Flute Choir on April 27, the Taiko Drummers on April 28 and the Jame C. Myford Sculpture Invitational on April 29.

Families from all over the area including nearby Butler will definitely want to attend at least one of the events at the festival. Area poster printing services have most likely provided the very dramatic and colorful poster that is being used to promote this year’s Kaleidoscope Regional Arts Festival; the poster features the neck of a guitar colored with numerous paint blotches on a black background.
