SpringArtFest takes place March 27

March 20, 2008

Nearly 30 ASU faculty, staff, alumni, retirees, and student artists and craftsmen will sell their wares at SpringArtFest from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., March 27, on Hayden Lawn at ASU’s Tempe campus.

On sale will be jewelry, ceramics, photographs, books, greeting cards, scrapbook pages, hand-stamped cards and crafts, CDs, sewn housewares and home décor, photo notecards and more.

The ASU Chapter of Women Beyond Borders also will sell items handcrafted by women in Afghanistan.

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

During the sale, ASU graduate Nancy Kartoon of Skinsational Henna & Temporary Body Art will be creating traditional and modern henna designs and sparkling glitter temporary tattoos. Farah Usman of ASU Stores also will be selling henna tattoos during the event. Food and beverages will be sold by Aramark, and there will be an exhibit of ASU’s new “edible campus” initiative, where fruits and vegetables grown on campus are used in campus dining.

Though Easter precedes the event, there will be an egg hunt on the Tempe campus the morning of SpringArtFest. Two eggs will have certificates entitling the winners to select a gift from one of the artists, up to $20 in value.

Admission to SpringArtFest 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 fall Holiday Sale Extravaganza arts and crafts sale.
