Event Description
The Spencer Museum of Art’s Student Advisory Board (SSAB) will host its fourth annual Arts and Culture Festival on Saturday, May 7 from 1 to 4 PM. The event, which is free and open to everyone, will feature art by local and student artists, KU cultural group information booths, live music, KU African Drum Ensemble, the launch-with help from Kansas Public Radio’s Laura Lorson-of the 2011 Southwest Junior High “Bulldog” podcasts about the Spencer’s collection, the opening of the annual It Starts with Art! children’s art exhibition, and the opening of the SSAB’s juried student-art exhibition Converging Identities. Also, Irish artist Alen MacWeeney will give a talk in the 20/21 Gallery about his photographs that are featured in the exhibition That Invisible Dance: Art and Literature under the British Empire from the 1800s to Beyond, followed by a screening of his documentary Traveller (2002).
