Festifall!

Last Sunday afternoon, the town of Chapel Hill held its 37th annual Festifall as a celebration of local art. Held downtown, Festifall showcased more than 100 exhibitors and featured art from over 75 artists from all over the state. And the ArtsCenter was part of it! We had not one, but two booths. Festifall visitors could color a leaf, make a clay animal, or have a portrait drawn. Check out some photos of our staff and visitors.

On another note, new executive director Ed Camp will be holding a few meet and greets in the coming weeks, so come out, get to know him, and share some of your ideas for the ArtsCenter. The times and dates for the meet and greets are:

Oct 7 5:30pm – 7:30pm at the ArtsCenter

Oct 11 4pm-6pm at the ArtsCenter

Oct 29 5:30pm-7:30pm at Jesse Kallisher Studio across the street

Nov 13 6pm-9pm at the ArtsCenter
