The 11th annual Family Art Day was an exciting event again this year! Despite threatening storms early on, hundreds of community members came to explore the visual arts, African drumming, and creative movement! River Arts Alliance thanks the following artists for their contributions:
Brianna Haupt, Catherine Cleary, Dirk Nelson, Robert Armstrong (Dr. Bob), Julie Johnston, Jennifer Weaver, Jill Krase, Jill Marie Pigott, John Durfey, Julia Crozier, Kathie Peterson, Lance Ngari, Linda Sue Eastman, Dan Eastman, May Denzer, Mary Singer, Michelle Cochran, Mickey Maslowski, Pang Vang, Patty Albrecht, Sarah Johnson, Tanya Corcoran, Teresa Schumaker, Tom Dukich, Anne Scott Plummer, and Sydney Swanson.
