True to the mission of the newly-formed Blue River Arts Council, the first complete year of programming will provide art, entertainment and inclusive cultural events for Crete throughout the year. Funds raised will help renovate and reopen the Isis Theatre and fund future arts and entertainment events.
For our Birds of a Feather event, 20 local artists will be chosen to decorate 36” cardinal sculptures. These decorated works will tour the community and be displayed at various locations in conjunction with city events and activities, culminating in a community celebration and the auction of the permanent artistic sculptures.
The cardinal was chosen as a symbol of vitality for our community and as the icon that truly brings us all together. The birds will be decorated in ways that celebrate the cultural and business diversity of Crete while confirming that birds of a feather flock together.
Plan to join us at the WING DING! This event will feature a chicken wing cooking contest, an opportunity to see all the cardinal statues on display, an auction to bid on the available statues, entertainment and more!
