Clemson Festival of the Arts rescheduled for June 22

The Clemson Festival of the Arts originally scheduled for May 18 in downtown Clemson was cancelled due to inclement weather. The festival has been rescheduled for June 22 with a back-up weather plan for an indoor location.

The festival will feature hands-on art projects, music, food, fun for kids and local artists selling their works. Admission and all activities are free.

One highlight will be the creation of a large scale work of art by a “flash mob,” including attendees who want to participate. Both adults and children will have opportunities to create their own works of art or to work with others to create a group painting or sculpture.

“Our theme this year is ‘Come Dabble in the Arts,’ ” said Tommye Hurst, executive director of the ARTS Center in Clemson. “Everyone will have the chance to create and participate.”

Members of the Artists Guild of Clemson will sell their works and give demonstrations. The festival will include many arts activities for children, and food and the work of local artists will be available for sale. A variety of local musicians will perform throughout the day.

The festival takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 22 at Catherine Smith Plaza on College Avenue next to the old Astro Theater. The festival will move to The ARTS Center at 212 Butler St. if bad weather threatens.
