My apologies, there we will be no discussion about the thing here. I graduated from the College of Arts and Architecture, for a university supposedly obsessed and overrun by the "culture of football," there was none of that influence to be found there. There was, however, a culture of a different sort and an interest in the annual Arts Fest, for more than just a summer party. A handy guide for some of what this weekend holds is after the jump.
For all your information check out the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts site, here are some of the things of note:
Schlow Center Region Library has their third annual BookFestPA on Saturday, July 14, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., located outside library. Meet a number of local and national authors, such Sara Shepard, Tawni O'Dell, Lee Stout, Artie Bennett and more.
The State Theatre will be hosting the Fred Waring Film Festival showcasing two of the musician/host/inventor's films: Syncopation on Friday, July 13 at 3 p.m. and Varsity Show on Saturday, July 14 at 3 p.m.
Hey! Remember when threads used to devolve in to arguments about the Civil War? Good times, those days. Brush up on your history at The Pennsylvania Civil War Road Show, commemorating the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War, will be near the Bryce Jordan Center. (Note: will not feature exhibits extolling Lincoln's herioic triumph over vampires.)
Looking to get out of the heat? I always recommend visiting the Palmer Museum of Art anytime you're on campus. It's that crazy building by the Forum with the lion paws outside, inside it houses a nice variety of permanent pieces and rotating temporary collections.
The "Other" ArtsFest. If you're looking for something a little different, make sure you check out the Peoples Choice Festival of Pennsylvania Arts & Crafts on the lawn outside the Pennsylvania Military Museum just a short drive down 322 in Boalsburg.
Most importantly, be safe and have fun.
