An affair of the art: White Plaza to come under control of the Muses April 6
Art in every imaginable form baton twirling, capoeira, post-modern painting and spoken-word performance, to name just a few will take over White Plaza starting at noon Friday, April 6, for "An Art Affair."
The Student Organizing Committee for the Arts puts on the event, which is free and open to the public, as a way of fostering a sense of community among the arts, said Seth Cohen, president and founder of the organization. This will be the fair's second year.
Art on view will not be for sale, Cohen said. Rather, the idea of the event is to create a casual, noncompetitive and inclusive venue for a gamut of artistic endeavors.
The fair will feature free food, free drinks including Jamba Juice and free face painting, and event-goers will have the opportunity to meet faculty experts in dance, drama, music, film, studio art and creative writing, Cohen said. A representative from Stanford Lively Arts also will be on hand.
In addition, there will be opportunities to participate in a number of interactive events. Among other things, event-goers can work on a large painting, sculpt with Play-Doh, bring an instrument and jam with the St. Lawrence String Quartet and take salsa lessons.
