Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation (MKAF) celebrates 20 years in the cultural arts by enhancing the offerings of its annual Festival of the Arts set for Oct. 24–25 at the scenic MKAF Cultural Arts Village in Destin, Florida.
The two-day event features exhibits of more than 100 artists from 12 states (and one from Europe) showcasing a diverse palette of artistic styles in 18 different art mediums. Art lovers of all ages will be able to watch artists create works of art, browse art from dozens of emerging new and student artists, and get hands-on in the interactive children’s art station. Beyond the visual arts, the festival will feature two days of continuous live music and a sampling of the local culinary arts scene. Entertaining street performers, lively art drawings and the sale of colorful keepsake souvenirs — all create a family-friendly festival feel.
The festival is open to the public and runs Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Daily admission is $5. The event is free to children under 12 and MKAF members. For more information, click here www.mattiekellyartsfoundation.org/pr/newsreleases-foa.htm, or call (850) 650-2226.
