Ceramics, glass, jewelry, wood, paintings, baskets, photography, pastels, graphics, sculpture, and fiber will be available at the 31st annual College Hill Arts Festival. Seventy-five artists, who were chosen by a panel of three independent jurors, will be exhibiting on the shady corner of the University of Northern Iowa campus in Cedar Falls at 23rd and College Streets.
At the Festival on Friday and Saturday evening from 5:00-7:00 P.M. Nancy Price, author of the novel and blockbuster film starring Julia Roberts, “Sleeping with the Enemy”, will be autographing copies of her latest book, “Two Hundred Men, One Woman”, which also features her own pen and ink illustrations.
Complimenting the artists’ exhibits will be a variety of musical groups performing on stage; new this year will be the Eulenspiegel Puppets performing on Saturday plus a hands-on creative activity for children sponsored by the Hearst Center for the Arts; Rickie Rowray, the “Balloon Man”; a Petting Zoo sponsored by the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Symphony; Fantasy Face Painting; and the Young Art Collectors Gallery. There will also be a variety of food vendors to entice Festival attendees. Picnic tables will be located near the food booths and the Performing Arts Stage. Balloon arches will also add to the festivities.
We ask your patience with ongoing road construction in the area and hope you will join us as we celebrate the 31st anniversary of the College Hill Arts Festival!.
