ARTapalooza on Main

Event Date: September, 06 2014

Event Times: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

The 9th annual ARTapalooza on Main fine art show will be held Saturday, September 6 from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm on the street and sidewalks of downtown Cedar Falls.

Held annually, the juried show brings many talented artists from throughout the region.  In addition, there is something for everyone to enjoy as downtown is filled with artist demonstrations, live entertainment and free children’s activities.

More than 50 regional artists will display and sell their work at booths set up along the meandering Main Street.  Artists hoping to showcase their work must pass a highly competitive process to be accepted into the show.  A variety of artwork will be featured in this year’s show, including ceramics, paintings, metal sculptures, fiber, jewelry, photography, drawing, printmaking, and mixed media, among others.

Numerous downtown stores will host free children’s activities and the Hearst Center for the Arts will also have face painting, art easel painting for both children and adults, and chalkboard art.

Returning this year is the free Pastel-A-Panel activity where budding artists, 15 and older, will be invited to pastel a small section of the Edgar Degas painting, Blue Dancers.  The painting has been divided into 12 squares, and each person will pastel one square.  Once all the squares are complete, they will be put together to create the final pastel painting.

Other entertainment throughout the afternoon includes artists painting en plein air, the WCF Symphony Zoo, and Balloon Animals.  Live music from the Commmons Jazz Ensemble UNI Jazz Band, UNI Suzuki School of Music, Uncle Chuck and His Imaginary Band, Kirk Eastman, Rick Vanderwall, Bob Dunn, Cedar Falls High School Band, and UNI Jazz Trio will be held on the corner of 4th and Main and outside Cup of Joe.

Sponsors are L&M Transmission and Towing, HyVee, Cedar Falls Tourism & Visitors Bureau, and Friends of the Hearst Center for the Arts. Artapalooza is hosted by Community Main Street.
Join the fun on Main Street in downtown Cedar Falls!
