Multidisciplinary spectacles, ingenuity and natural beauty will mingle freely as the Steamboat Springs Arts Council presents the 2017 All Arts Festival for the third year.
Not only will the festival encompass the visual arts, it will engage all of the senses with music, literary and performance arts in partnership with Opera Steamboat, Strings Music Festival, Piknik Theatre and the Steamboat Art Museum.
Festivities commence Friday with the Fine Art Stroll from noon to 5 p.m. at the All Arts Festival’s new location at 10th Street and Lincoln Avenue. The Stroll will continue from 10 to 5 p.m. Saturday and 10 to 4 p.m. Sunday.
“Each artist is completely different from the next,” said Tim Zandee, organizer and main judge for the juried show. “It’s smaller so you have a chance to spend more time viewing the art and visiting with the artists.”
Focused on fine art rather than fine craft, 30 artists were selected based on quality in each medium for the juried Stroll, Zandee said. Traveling as far as New York, Georgia, Texas and Hawaii, 90 percent of the artists are new to the All Arts Festival.
“This is where you find one-of-a-kind pieces,” said Barb King, Steamboat Springs Arts Council’s special events and marketing coordinator.
