Celebrate Art! Celebrate Coffee! Poster, raffle art unveiling prelude to September festival

Body: 

WILLMAR — The 2018 Celebrate Art! Celebrate Coffee! poster and raffle art was revealed Aug. 2 at the Event Center of The Barn Theatre.

Featured artist on this year's poster is Kari Weber of New London.

Celebrate Art! Celebrate Coffee! is in its 21st years of providing arts entertainment in downtown Willmar. Formerly an outdoor event, this year's event will be held at Kennedy Elementary School near downtown Willmar after last year's event was forced inside due to inclement weather, and it was so well received as an indoor event.

Slated for Saturday, Sept. 15, the event will once again include a juried arts show/sale, art demonstrations, hands-on art, a food court, musical entertainment and much more.

Volunteers are needed to help make Celebrate Art! Celebrate Coffee! a success. Some areas needing help this year are the Kid's and Big Kid's Art Tents, Artist Tent helpers and booth sitters, and setup and take down. If you would like to help out, contact Janet Olney at the Willmar Area Arts Council office at 320-235-8560 or willmararts@gmail.com.
