ARTS TREK APRIL 16th
You won't want to miss Shawnee's most innovative arts happening--Arts Trek! This event takes place at St. Gregory's University and the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art on Saturday, April 16, and is free and open to the public.
Arts Trek is a family-friendly arts adventure composed of two components, an arts festival and a performance walk.
At the arts festival (10am-4pm), local artists and crafters display, demonstrate, and sell their arts in booths located inside and outside of the Museum. Local organizations and businesses provide hands-on art activities for children and adults and visitors are invited to participate in a collaborative community artwork. Performers entertain visitors as they visit and shop the booths on the museum grounds. Food vendors are also on site.
During the performance walk (10am-12pm) visitors encounter varied and seemingly impromptu performances in non-traditional locations. The short performances occur in different locations on the St. Gregory's University campus. Visitors follow a map and a guide, walking to each performance location in one large group. The walk ends on the museum grounds.
