Young Artists Exhibit

by Rose Price

Make plans to go out today in  Champaign, Illinois and see some beautiful art!  As part of the Boneyard Arts Festival, enjoy the student artwork from Hua Nian Art Studio on display in the Children's Department on the ground floor. The art will be on display until April 28. Library hours: 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday; 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday.

The Boneyard Arts Festival has grown into an 'open source' festival that Champaign County residents have truly made their own. Last spring, the Boneyard featured over 130 different venues - both indoors and out - where residents and visitors alike could enjoy an incredibly diverse range of performing, spoken and visual art offered by nearly 500 artists from all backgrounds.

The Boneyard Arts Festival is string band music in Sidney, yodeling in downtown Urbana, a cinema festival in Champaign, Brazilian bossa novae on the U of I campus, opera and origami, glass blowing and graphic design, puppetry and painting, juggling and jewelry, hip hop break dancing, photography, ceramics and so much more.

Thanks 40 North for the info!

The 10th Annual Boneyard Arts Festival

by Rose Price

The 40 North Boneyard Arts Festival is an annual four-day event showcasing the broad range of creative activity flourishing in our community. Make plans to stop by on April 20 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.  The goal of this event is to bring together local artists and businesses for a special event showcasing the art that lives in Champaign County.

More than a traditional arts walk, the Boneyard is a unique countywide celebration that takes place in a wide variety of venues (over 100!) - both traditional (clubs, galleries & museums) and non-traditional (ice cream shops & real estate offices) - and features the work of literally hundreds of artists.

Sculptors, weavers, painters, photographers and other visual artists join musicians, actors, dancers, poets and performers of all kinds in sharing their creativity throughout Campustown, Champaign, Urbana, Mahomet, Homer, Rantoul, Sidney and St. Joseph. 40 North invites artists to partner with local businesses, arts organizations, nonprofits, schools or municipal offices in hosting a performance or display of work...and join the celebration!  

For a complete list of venues and artists please visit 40north.org or pick up The News-Gazette on Monday, April 16th for the official map of the festival.

Thanks News Gazette for the info!!!
