Exhibit Columbus is joining with the Indianapolis-based nonprofit Arts For Learning for Family Day from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Mill Race Park on Fifth Street. Organizers have planned an afternoon of family activities and performances focused around cultural differences and commonality.
This event will be at the same time as the Kiwanis Incredible Duck Splash at the Round Lake.
On the park stage will be:
Mundo Beat Band — a musical journey of Latin American
Griot Drum Ensemble — a unique blend of African Diaspora music and storytelling
Garret Uyeno — a demonstration of traditional Japanese instruments, koto and sangen
Art stations will include:
Fabric art with Stephanie Robertson
Mixed-media art with Sofiya Inger
Photography with Bill Rasdell
Calligraphy art with Garret Uyeno
Drumming circle with Griot Drum Ensemble
Reading station at the “Reader’s Chair,” manufactured by Indiana Furniture
This program is made possible with support from The Heritage Fund — the Community Foundation of Bartholomew County.
Exhibit Columbus also has partnered with the Bartholomew County Public Library to present what it has labeled its Explorer Challenge from 2 to 4 p.m. to begin the first challenge: design, create and share your inspired artwork.
Organizers will bring art supplies and ideas. Attendees should bring their creativity.
