North Lake College To Host Arts & Literary Festival

New event promotes artistic discovery

IRVING, Texas- North Lake College will host a Fall Arts & Literary Festival October 14-17 at their Central Campus in Irving. The four-day schedule features a variety of artists, writers, musicians and photographers offering hands-on workshops, lectures, demonstrations and performances. All activities are free and open to the public.
 
From chalk drawing competitions and raku firing to pixel animation, the Fall Arts & Literary offers something for everyone. The North Lake Theatre Company will preview its upcoming production of A Streetcar Named Desire while the art department will unveil a new wall mural honoring former gallery artists.
 
“This festival is more than free entertainment, it’s one of those can’t-miss events,” says Student Publications Manager Kathleen Stockmier. “It’s a time for the community to explore and discover the arts together. Whether you roll up your sleeves for ceramics, or roll out a blanket for jazz under the stars.”
 
In combination with Writers’ Fest and Hispanic Heritage Month, the festival will also feature prominent scholar and author Neil Foley. Additional writers speaking at the festival include Richard Abshire, Brett Bodily, Joanna Cattanach, Jennifer Cole Judd, and Reavis Z. Wortham.
 
Festival admission and parking is free throughout the week. DART riders should exit the Orange Line at North Lake College Station. For more information, visit www.northlakecollege.edu.
