Charlie's Center for the Arts - Student Artists
2nd Annual Event - March 6 - 8, 2015
The St Charles Arts Council, in partnership with Northern Illinois University, presents the All-Arts Event – Charlie’s Center for the Arts – for STUDENT ARTISTS.
The Charlie’s Student Artist Event is an annual event that takes place the first weekend in March to align with Youth Art Month, a nationally recognized annual observance to emphasize the value of art and art education for all children and to encourage public support for quality school art programs. Charlie’s will encompass venues that feature art and video galleries, music, and dance, which will showcase the performing and visual art of kindergarten – college student artists.
The 2015 event will feature:
a neXt gallery [visual art and video] opening on Friday, March 6, juried by Heather Weber, professor of art at Waubonsee Community College and curator of the NEIU Art Gallery, and featuring video work from students at NIU
a Saturday evening concert at the Baker Community Center featuring modern guitar virtuoso Fareed Haque and his Trio, with Student Jazz Musicians "sitting in"
a Sunday afternoon Student Showcase at the Baker Center with student musicians and dancers from all over the region, featuring dancers and musicians from NIU
a Variety Show at East High School presented by P-ARTS [People for the Arts] an Arts Booster and Advocacy organization at East
