Worldwide Search Makes This Year’s Kid’s ART Fest a Multi-Cultural Event
An exciting NEW multi-cultural themed hands-on exhibition, great partners, games, food, music and take-home art activities for kids from pre-school to 12 years old, all come together September 7th for a fun filled day for the entire family.
“We’ve worked with Kiwanis for many years with this art festival” explained Todd Still, Director of Youth Education at the Dunedin Fine Art Center. “This year, we’ve got a tremendous group of presentation partners that are going to make for a VERY festive event,” he added.
This year’s Kaleidoscope of Cultures theme has led to a natural fit with Steve Turner from Giving Tree Music who will be doing a drum circle around 11:30am and of course the Dance and Circus Arts of Tampa Bay, who will be putting on and incredible aerial display. “We have all the great hands-on activities that always accompany a new installation in the children’s museum inside DFAC,” explained George Ann Bissett, DFAC’s executive director. “with this year’s exhibition being so multi-cultural, it just adds a tremendous amount of fun to what is always an already festive event” she concluded.
The festival which runs from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm features lots of hands-on fun which will include the EVER popular paint-a-car activity, where kids get to paint their designs on a real automobile supplied by Florida Auto Exchange. Hot dogs will be prepared by the Kiwanis Club of Dunedin and there will be live music. This is always a lot of fun explains Mr. Still. “Friday night, we have the opening reception for our gallery exhibitions, but the Saturday, it’s all about the kids!”
