You can’t spell Stratford without A-R-T
Celebrating Art returns for second year, offering something for everyone
October 14, 2017
For the second year, Stratford will hold the five-day event, Celebrating Art.
The event will take place October 13-18.
“It is the celebration of the visual arts,” said Mrs. Kathleen Medlin, the director of institutional advancement at Stratford.
“There will be three missions,” she said. “We want people to learn, to experience and to celebrate.’’
Local artists as well as artists from as far as California will come to Macon to be apart of this event. More than 50 artists will be exhibiting.
“There will be some returning artist and some who are new,” said Mrs. Medlin.
This year, Stratford will have its own glass pumpkin patch. Members of the community will have the opportunity to buy a glass pumpkin made by the Hot Glass Academy. The glass pumpkin patch will be on display in the area between the science building and the library.
The science building will turn into a pop-up art gallery and the main lobby will feature a student art gallery.
A section of the event that is dedicated to those apart of the Stratford community is the “Stratford Connections Art Exhibit.” Works of art created by Stratford parents, alumni, staff, and grandparents will be shown.
“It is a time-consuming, labor-intensive event to put on, but we are excited and we think it will be good for Stratford as well as the community,” said Mrs. Medlin.
