Fall ArtFest to offer work of ASU students, faculty, staff


November 06, 2008

More than 40 Arizona State University faculty, staff, and student artists and craftsmen will sell their wares at Fall ArtFest, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Nov. 19 on Hayden Lawn at the ASU Tempe campus.

On sale will be jewelry, ceramics, photographs, books, greeting cards, scrapbook pages, hand-stamped cards and crafts, CDs, flower arrangements, photo notecards, hand-blown glass vases and bowls, and more.

There also will be a henna artist creating tattoos, and performers from Naomi Iizuka’s “Anon(ymous),” which will be presented at the Paul V. Galvin Theater Dec. 4-7, will offer previews of the show.

Each artist will contribute an item for a silent auction, which will benefit the Herberger School of Art’s “wish list.”

Numbered fall leaves will be hidden on the campus before the sale. Numbers will be drawn ahead of time, and those who find leaves with the winning numbers will win prizes.

Admission to Fall ArtFest is free. The event is sponsored by The Devils’ Workshop, a campus organization that also presents a summer staff artfest featuring performances and exhibits by ASU staff, and a Spring ArtFest and Easter Egg Hunt, which are scheduled for April 2, 2009.

Parking is available at the Fulton Garage, College Street and University Drive, for $3 per hour. Or, the free Orbit bus line covers a variety of routes that lead to the ASU campus. For bus information, visit www.tempe.gov/tim/Bus/Orbit.htm.
