MESA, Ariz. – The general public is invited to attend the 3rd Annual Festival of the Arts featuring student musicians, poets, storytellers, dancers, and actors on Thursday, April 3 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Mesa Community College (MCC).
"The festival is designed to be a celebration of student talent, and is meant to bring all our MCC departments together," said organizer and MCC art faculty member Gingher Leyendecker. "The event creates collaboration between people who might not otherwise work together and gives the public an idea of what our students are learning at MCC. We have the art, music, dance, theatre, English, fashion merchandising, athletics, and interior design departments participating, as well as MCC’s student clubs. It's going to be an amazing day!"
The festival will host two stages between the MCC Theatre and Art Gallery where attendees can view students from varying departments performing their talents. The sound for these performances will be run by MCC’s sound engineering class.
Tents will be set up around campus for artists to sell and display their work. Visual demonstrations in painting, drawing, and ceramics will happen throughout the day.
MCC student clubs will be selling food at the festival including Indian tacos and ice cream, with free popcorn for all in attendance.
