I can’t believe I’m looking at the calendar and seeing the words July. The Arts Center’s children’s summer arts program is moving along with Week 5 starting on Monday. There are still openings available and selections are varied from Mixed Media Works with Sarah Gamble to Music with Sephra Puffe to Eric Carle Explorations with Jennifer Wentz to Fashion Design with Bonnie Tressler, dance, theatre and more with Sarah Johnson and finally Missoula Children’s Theatre will finish off the “season.”
Today in Jamestown you can not only experience popular culture with the County Fair but also refined culture as The Arts Center we will host The New York Kammermusiker, a double-reed ensemble presenting their 9th Annual Winds of Change Festival Tour. The performance will occur at 6:00 pm at the Arts Center. Tickets are $10 for members, $15 for non-members. Those 18 years of age and younger can attend for free. The performance is preceded between 3-5 pm with an opportunity for the public to interact and converse with these talented musicians. Tickets available at the door.
Annual Mini-Art Hunt will occur Saturday, July 11th and ends when all 12 art works are found! Visit our booth in McElroy park Saturday & Sunday during the White Cloud festivities. 12 unique mini-artworks by visual artist William “Mr. Billy” Hessian will be hidden throughout the Jamestown parks. Four Sets of Visual Clues (photos) to each artwork’s hiding place will be made public: Saturday, July 11th at 10:00 am & 3:00 pm and Sunday, July 12th at 10:00 am & 3:00 pm. The first clues will be the most challenging with the final clues being the most revealing. Clues and details will be posted here and on on the Jamestown Sun website under Area Voices. The Artist will also post the clues on his website: www.williamhessian.com Finders keepers. This original piece of miniature artwork is yours to keep. But Please! keep only one and leave any other artwork you find for the next hunter.
