AOG is Celebrating Another 25th Birthday!

It's that time of year again, the Clay County Fair! Arts on Grand is excited to once again provide Fair goers with original artworks, fun activities and musical entertainment!

But this year is a little different... it's our 25th year at the Clay County Fair!

And we plan on celebrating in a BIG way! This year, Fair goers can expect...

The introduction of the brand new Art Tent!
New musical artists
New art projects for kids of all ages! Including...

Vincent Van GoGogh - A paint by numbers adventure on a van!
American Gothic Grows! - A 8 x 10' recreation of the classic artwork
that could feature YOU as one of the artists!

So join us at our little corner of the Fairgrounds for music, fantastic artworks and FUN!

 

We still have volunteer shifts open!


Without our fabulous volunteers, we can't make any of the fun things listed above happen.
This year, we need more volunteers than ever to make our 25th year at the Clay County Fair the best year yet!

Volunteers are needed to help participants paint the Vincent Van GoGogh, guide artists with the creation of the American Gothic Grows!,
greet Fairgoers, hand out stickers and other fun surprises, be a booth proxy for artists when they need to take a break, be a roadie
for musicians and help to set up for gigs, and more!

All volunteer shifts are three hours long and run from 9 to 12, 12 to 3 and 3 to 6 each day of the Fair, Sept 12 through the 20th, 2015.

Volunteers get a free ticket into the Fair for the day of their shift and a free t-shirt, as well as our love forever! Those interested in volunteering can call (712) 262-4307 and talk to Katie to sign up.

Thank you! We'll see you at the Fair!

Artistans Road Trip is right around the corner...
