Venue shines spotlight on its potential
In the Artpark & Company season guidebook, Executive Director Sonia Kozlova Clark writes, “In our visioning process (speaking of a new master plan), we are inspired by the idea that ARTPARK = ART + NATURE + CULTURE for all.”
On Sunday afternoon, that idea became reality.
Art, of the theatrical kind, was on display courtesy of the theater academy students. Almost three-dozen elementary- and high school-aged youth staged a grand version of “Aladdin Jr.” Shows on Saturday and Sunday afternoon capped an action-packed camp that began in July. (Learn more by clicking on the link below.) The Mainstage Theater was full of happy patrons reliving the story twice told by Disney.
Nature was the backdrop later Sunday afternoon, as families and children played in the Percussion Garden. Across the Emerald Grove, Moshe Shulman Trio gave a culturally enriching concert of songs composed by its award-winning namesake.
With music, theater and dance partnering with art, nature and culture, Artpark lived up to its aspirations.
