Arts Champ JoAnn Wheeler is back in the papers. This morning's Derrick details her announcement of a Memorial Day festival in Oil City.

The day will center around four bronze statues that New York State artist Dave Poulin helped children create in a handful of the city’s elementary schools. Children were involved in every step of the statue process — from choosing the water theme of each statue and modeling for the likenesses to helping physically create the pieces.

The same article also lists Oil City's Jolly July 3 artists and the Arts in the Park series:
The Katy Bowser Duo, Franklin’s Silver Cornet Band, a barbershop evening with Fireside Harmony and Rhythm and Flair, Mark DeWalt and Catro, Big Leg Emma and Yankee Zydeco.

Clarion Limestone shakes up local high school theatre, bypassing more mundane choices for Vonnegut's Welcome to the Monkey House at 7:30 p.m. March 15-17 in the high school auditorium.

Grove City Theatre Arts Guild (GCTAG) will hold a general membership meeting on Tuesday, March 27, 2006 at 6:30 p.m. at Legacy Banquet Center, 1946 Mercer Grove City Road. All persons interested in community theater are invited to attend and become part of GCTAG, a nonprofit organization since 2002. If you have any questions, please call (724) 458-4013.

Finally, someone emailed me the other day asking about Hayseed Dixie. Here's their January 11, 2003 live performance at Stella Blue (Ashville NC).
