Celebrating Art with a Splash in Siouxland, Sioux City

29 Oct

Early September brought Art Splash again to Siouxland at Riverside Park in Sioux City. A number of artists that are local, regional and others present their expressions for area residents to view and purchase. It is a juried exhibition set in a park setting with an entertainment stage.

Various musical acts perform and the sound wafts over the park area. It’s fun to attend and for collectors a chance to add more items to their walls or gardens and for others a chance to be inspired by what they see. Ceramics, photography, oil and water and pastel paintings, wood working, jewelry, metalurgy, clothing, Art Splash is a plethora of a feast to fill one’s eyes.

Grand Meadow Heritage Center

7 Sep

This weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 8&9, there will be a festival at the Grand Meadow Heritage Center near Quimby and Washta, Iowa. The center itself is set up as a museum area with older buildlings and displays of times past. A log cabin, a former one-room school house, wagons, a black smith shop and a museum in a former area community school.

There should be a variety of activities occurring, although I am not certain what is actually taking place and have not been able to find much information doing an internet search. There is some antique farming equipment and people will be dressed in period clothing. This is a posting that contains a map and directions to find the Center, which is east of Hinton off of County Road C66. Reprints of the Center are here.
