Winter ArtFest set for Dec. 1 at ASU


November 17, 2011

The Fifth Annual Winter ArtFest will take place on Hayden Lawn at ASU’s Tempe campus from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 1.

Selling their wares at the ArtFest will be ASU staff, students, retirees and alumni. On sale will be jewelry, tote bags and handbags, notecards, photography, children’s books, pottery, music CDs and more.

The event includes an “ornament hunt.” Numbered paper ornaments are hidden on the campus. Those who find ornaments with winning numbers receive prizes at the ArtFest.

Performing from noon to 1 p.m. will be Artificial Red, a musical ensemble comprised of Native American artists Randy Kemp and Dean Yazzie, both ASU staff members.

Kemp (Choctaw/Euchee/Muscogee Creek) performs with various Native American flutes, while Yazzie (Dine’/Navajo) plays acoustic guitar. “Our music is a blend of original contemporary guitar arrangement with expressive flute responses, while intermittently fused with spoken word/poetry of Native American life, themes and views,” Kemp said.

The ArtFest is sponsored by The Devils’ Workshop. For more information, send an email to art_fest@asu.edu.
