SUMMERLIN® FESTIVAL OF ARTS RETURNS TO DOWNTOWN SUMMERLIN® OCT. 9 – 10, 2021
Signature Festival Presented by Las Vegas Review-Journal
WHAT: The Summerlin® Festival of Arts, presented by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, returns to Downtown Summerlin® Oct. 9-10. The hallmark, outdoor festival features approximately 100 fine artists from Southern Nevada and surrounding states, each carefully selected by a jury of local art experts.
“Our 2021 roster includes many popular and returning artists, such as celebrated local painter Niki Sands, jeweler Darren Kensington and photographer Charles Siefert,” said Danielle Bisterfeldt, senior vice president, marketing and consumer experience, Summerlin. “We had an overwhelming number of applicants this year and 31% of the festival’s artists are new to the event. Celebrated media include oil, watercolor, pottery, sculpture, photography, glass and jewelry – all in a mix of contemporary and classic designs. We are thrilled to have it return to The Lawn this October.”
Live art demonstrations will be presented by students and local professionals from College of Southern Nevada (CSN) Photography and Graphic Communications Departments and the members of local chapter AIGALV (American Institute of Graphic Arts Las Vegas).
For the science-minded, the award-winning Faith Lutheran High School Robotics program and the UNLV Engineering School and Nevada Society of Professional Engineers will offer interactive robotic demonstrations and hands-on science activities. Bishop Gorman High School will also have various kid-friendly activations throughout the weekend.
