  • Arts festival to feature favorites, new artists

    The 45th annual Festival of the Arts will feature some favorites, some newcomers and also at least one familiar artist who has a new style.

    The event will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, April 2, at the Noel Fine Arts Center of University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. Admission is free, and there will be an area dedicated for children’s activities in Room 190 on the first floor.


  • Sci-fi fantasy to stop in Stevens Point

    Michael Glielmi grew up with a black-and-white television watching a favorite science program with Dr. Dan Q. Posen. It’s no wonder then that he loves to share his sci-fi enthusiasm with others.

    “I have been a huge sci-fi geek ever since,” he said. “I still have one of his books.”


  • Library to host book art demolition

    John Milton, in his anti-censorship pamphlet “Areopagitica” from 1644 writes, “He who destroys a good book kills reason itself.”

    But what if that “destruction” actually improves the book?

    Elementary students in grades 4-year-old kindergarten through fifth-grade, their caregivers and siblings will have just such an opportunity during “Book Demolition Part 1,” from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 30, at Rosholt Branch Library, 137 N. Main St., Rosholt. The event is free.


  • Kids show beauty runs deep

    It’s a timeless tale, one of beauty, beasts, lessons and love, and Tomorrow River Acting Club (TRAC) is putting a new twist on it.

    TRAC members – Amherst Elementary and Middle School students – will perform “Beauty Is The Beast” in a dinner theater production beginning at 5:30 p.m. Friday, March 10, in the Tomorrow River Schools cafeteria.


  • Exhibit showcases youth talents

    More than 80 youth artists hand-picked from Stevens Point Area Senior High School (SPASH), Pacelli Catholic High School, Pacelli Catholic Middle School and Ben Franklin and P.J. Jacobs Junior High Schools are featured in an art exhibit showing the talents of the youth artists.

    The “Emerging Artists” exhibit opened Tuesday at Riverfront Arts Center, 1200 Crosby Ave., Stevens Point, where an artist’s reception will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, March 12.
