Americana: Arts Fest 2015


We’ve been hosting Arts Fest since 2012. It’s a collaboration between different Humanities disciplines. Each year we highlight an aspect of the Humanities department. In the past we’ve had a theatre performance or a dance performance. This year we’re highlighting the visual arts with an outdoor poppy installation around Fannin Hall: The Blood of Texas Heroes. The theme this year is Americana. That’s the inspiration behind this year’s Arts Fest.

Ms. Halko also will conduct a three-day workshop as part of the event. The workshop will be at Richland College in Fannin Hall, Room F179 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 7, from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on April 8 and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 9.

Featured work from Dallas County Community College District students in the RACI show will include ceramic and 3D media. The criteria of the RACI show were set up to promote innovation by requiring only 20 percent of the total artwork to be made from clay. Functional and sculptural pieces were considered as long as the pieces displayed innovation in some form.

The RACI show, established in honor of Richland College Art Visiting Scholar Jen Rose, is funded through a DCCCD foundation grant given by an anonymous donor.

Richland College is located at 12800 Abrams Road in Dallas. Southside on Lamar is located at 1409 S. Lamar St. in Dallas.
