Art on the River planning is in full swing for the event scheduled June 12th – 14th at Kiefer Park along the St. Clair River. Trina Avedisian, President of Citizens for a Vibrant Community, says, “We’re moving forward and committed to putting this event on for our community.”
This year’s featured artist is Cecil Williams, whose preferred media is stained glass and painting in oils. His paintings are exhibited in many locations around the United States and even as far as Germany. Mr. Williams will be creating a painting exclusively for Art on the River.
Art on the River is a grass-roots art show and music festival hosted by the community group Citizens for a Vibrant Community. This family friendly event includes art workshops, vendors, food, and dancing. This year’s music lineup include several well known blues artists from the Detroit area.
