Festival of The Arts 2017
The Diamond Valley Arts Council is pleased to present the 12th Annual Festival of the Arts the weekend of September 20 & 21, 2017. The theme “Arts & Culture: A Celebration” was selected for this year’s festival as a way to acknowledge the talent and creativity of so many in our community.
Every year the festival has a judged art exhibition which showcases the works of local artists in 3 categories of art, each with 3 different expressions. They are: 2D, 3D and Digital (Visual Arts Category), Music, Dance and Film (Performance Arts) and Poetry, Short Stories and One-Act Plays (Literary Arts). First, second and third place entries in the various expressions will be recognized. Art submission requirements are available at www.thedvac.org
In addition to the art, the festival will kick off with a performance by the Hemet High School Jazz Band at 7:00 pm on Friday evening. Saturday will run from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and include Face Painting, Art Demonstrations and presentations of the Literary and Performance Arts Categories. The festival concludes with our regular 3rd Saturday Wine, Art and Jazz Concert featuring the Peter Curtis Trio. Tickets for this concert are $25 for General Admission or $20 for DVAC Members. They are available online or at the Arts Center.
