Volunteer Park Brings Innovative Signs

Trail sign pictures were placed at Volunteer Park. The artist was Irina Astvatsaturov, an Armenian who does a great job with Art4Life.

The Springboard for the Arts grant allowed this project. It is yet another way to partner arts and health, encouraging pedestrians to easily access destinations along our trails and sidewalks. The sign is located just west of Dakota/Minnesota Avenue bridge.

Three Rivers Arts Council shows how we can incorporate art in innovative ways.Three Rivers Arts Council Three Rivers Arts Council

Health Watch is another good way to encourage locals and visitors to use trails.

Think Global Hear It Local

Three Rivers Arts Council

Good news! Lorraine Klaasen and her ensemble have agreed to tour this fall as part of Arts Midwest World Fest. Lorraine is one of the few South African artists who have preserved the classic sound of Township Music, which continues to be the most distinctive sound to come out of South Africa.  We’re excited Lorraine will tour in our program and equally excited to feature South African music which has not been part of Arts Midwest World Fest before.  You can find more information about Lorraine here:
