Arts Alive is one of the most unique, family-friendly, action-oriented community art events in the Greater Willamette Valley. An outside art event, we build an outdoor studio space, bring professional artists and invite the entire community of art enthusiasts, of all ages, to share the experience and process of art. Dedicated to raising the visibility of working artists, the opportunity also provides for community art lovers to engage, where the observer becomes the artist, the poet, the musician. Participants actually make art with the artists, write and read poems with poets from our community, make music and dance with area musicians. Through our Call to Artists, creatives of all stripes painters, poets, sculptures, writers, performers, and musicians from all over the area to share their creative process and art with the larger community. In the past, we’ve had ceramicists, jazz musicians, printmakers, glass artists, jewelers, poets, and more participate in Arts Alive!
