Two weeks ago, Walton Arts Center announced plans for Artosphere, a new regional arts and nature festival “celebrating artists, influenced by nature, who help inspire us to lead more sustainable lives.”
Yesterday, the festival’s website went live.
Community Relations Coordinator Beth Goodwin said she is excited to launch a dedicated Artosphere website at artospherefestival.org. “Because this is the debut season of Artosphere, we will be adding new programming events and partner information weekly,” she said, adding that the first big programming announcement will be Friday, Feb. 5.
According to the website, all tickets for Artosphere events will be less than $30, and many will be free. Within a few weeks, WAC officials hope to have Artosphere festival passes on sale.
Tickets to four Artosphere events are now on sale and range in price from $5.50 to $15.50.
Artosphere events on sale as of Tuesday, Feb. 2, 2010
- April 9 – Preview Party: Vivaldi’s Four Seasons
- May 14, 15 – Momix: Botanica
- May 21, 22 – The Man Who Planted Trees
- May 26, 29, 30 – TPO Farfalle (Butterflies)
Artosphere events and programs are scheduled to take place all over Northwest Arkansas. In the coming weeks, events at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks, Crystal Bridges at the Massey and other Bentonville locations are expected to be announced. Programs are also being planned at all of the region’s major libraries and schools.
We’ll have more when we know more.
