Fine Arts Festival showcases students’ creativity and talent


UTICA — Enjoy a day surrounded by eye-catching visual arts in a school setting as the Utica City School District hosts its fourth annual Fine Arts Festival.

The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 11, in the main gym at Thomas R. Proctor High School, 1203 Hilton Ave.

Guests will enter through the Arcuri entrance of the school and festival attendants will be greeted by a carnival style display of treats, face painting, crafts and a variety of fair-themed activities in the first floor cafeteria.

Student artwork will be on display in the halls leading up to the gym, where the rest of the exhibit will take place.

This is a K-12 art exhibition, and all 13 schools in the Utica District will be represented at the event. A special section for senior art students and artwork created by art teachers in the district also will be on site.

Musical performances will take place throughout the day featuring the Proctor High School band, choir and Moose Ensemble.

There will be caricatures by artist Andrew Buffington, and the Ziyara Zanies clowns will get everyone smiling.
