Stillman to Participate in 'Community Arts Conversations' at Amphitheatre
Faculty and students from the Department of Fine Arts at Stillman will join other representatives from local arts and cultural organizations at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater on Tuesday, September 27, 2011 for “Community Arts Conversations.” Nineteen groups will be present from 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m., offering both information and promotional items to the public during this free event.
Organized by The Arts Council, the goal of the event is introduce local cultural organizations to the public and provide information about them and their staff on a personal level. Citizens might be familiar with most of the groups, but never have the chance to meet the performers or administrators and discuss their craft and contribution to the community face to face. All groups will be offering a creative display such as demonstrations by potter Jerry Brown (Northwest AL Arts Council, Hamilton, AL) and an appearance by Ludwig van Beethoven (courtesy of the Tuscaloosa Symphony Orchestra). Discounted pricing for upcoming events will also be offered by individual groups according to their specific activities, and tours of the Amphitheater will be available to patrons during the event.
Participating entities include The Arts Council, Actor’s Charitable Theatre, Alabama Blues Project, Children’s Hands-On Museum, Kentuck Museum Association, Northwest Alabama Arts Council, Paul W. Bryant Museum, Stillman College, The University of Alabama Creative Campus, The University of Alabama Department of Theatre and Dance, The University of Alabama Press, The University of Alabama School of Music, Theatre Tuscaloosa, Tuscaloosa Childrens Theatre, Tuscaloosa Community Dancers, Tuscaloosa County Preservation Society, Tuscaloosa Museum of Art: Home of the Westervelt Collection, Tuscaloosa Symphony Orchestra and the West Alabama Quilters Guild.
