Two years ago, the streets of downtown Vicksburg were full of the energy that art and music can conjure. The community will be offered that experience again as the Vicksburg Cultural Arts Cente , the VCAC, brings the Art Stroll back on Saturday, July 21 from 4 to 9 pm.
Downtown business and building owners will be opening their doors to showcase artworks from local talented visual artists and musical performers. Visitors to the VCAC Art Stroll will be provided an extraordinary opportunity to participate in a unique community art project at Oswalt Park. “A number of artists are collaborating right now under the cloak of secrecy to bring a special experience to the Village,” said Center Director Syd Bastos.
New this year, street performers will provide even more entertainment for kids and adults alike. “We’ve got some special street performances lined up to add additional excitement to the Arts Stroll experience,” said Amanda Wilson, VCAC staff member and coordinator for entertainment for the Arts Stroll.
The staff at the VCAC is busy settling the details of the event. You can follow the progress of their efforts on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/VicksburgCulturalArtsCenter, on the website at vicksburgarts.com or stop at the Vicksburg Cultural Arts Center for the latest information.
