Oklahoma Higher Education Campus E-Clips sponsored by the Communicators Council

Rock Island Arts Festival

USAO
October 1-2

The Chickasha Area Arts Council, the City of Chickasha and the University of Science and Arts are collaborating on the project that will make downtown Chickasha a hub for the arts in the community and the area.

Oklahoma artists Dustin Boise, a graduating art major from the University of Central Oklahoma; Kolbe Roper, program assistant for Oklahoma Art in Public Places, and Eric Baker of Ebbing Night Art Studio in Owasso will work on the design team with Held and artist Cecil Lee on the project.

The project revolves around the idea of making the downtown area near the historic Rock Island Depot into a new arts district with a public arts sculpture as its focal point. The sculpture is scheduled to be installed in front of the Mill Building at the historic Depot and will be unveiled during the 2010 Rock Island Arts Festival, Oct. 1-2.

The project is sponsored by the Chickasha Area Arts Council and the City of Chickasha with funding by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Oklahoma Arts Council, the Union Pacific Foundation and local patrons.

More information about the new sculpture and the new arts district is available at the CAAC website -- www.chickashaarts.org.
