Blog: Rock Island Arts Festival special meeting Jan. 28

— Since I moved to Chickasha two years ago, I have been pleasantly surprised by the local artistic community.

The Chickasha Area Arts Council has had an impact on Chickasha. One only needs to look down the east side of Main St. Chickasha for proof.

The "Tracks of Time" sculpture stands as evidence of Chickasha's love for the arts. Our local university, the University of Science and Arts Oklahoma, is the only public university in Oklahoma with a strictly liberal arts focused curriculum.

With all this zeal for the arts in this small, Oklahoma town of about 16,000 people, shouldn't more of us--including myself--be at the ready with ideas and support?

The CAAC has organized the annual Rock Island Arts Festival for the past four years. It's a year-long and all-volunteer project.

At 7 p.m. on Jan. 28 at the Chickasha Public Library, there will be a meeting considering streamlining the Rock Island Arts Festival. CAAC is seeking community input.

This is your chance, Chickasha, to help define the future of the Rock Island Arts Festival, whatever that future looks like.

I would encourage anyone who has art in their heart to attend the special CAAC meeting on Jan. 28 at 7 p.m. in the Chickasha Public Library.
