The Sagebrush Arts Fest has returned to the beautiful campus of ISU at the corner of 5th and Carter Streets in Pocatello. Come to the Arts Fest on September 14 and 15, 2013 Saturday and Sunday, from 10am-5:00 pm both days. Admission is free.

US Bank has presented a grant of $ 3,000 to the Pocatello Art Center for its annual Sagebrush Arts Fest . According to Liz Johnson, District Manager, US Bank awarded the funds to the Arts Fest to support arts and culture in Pocatello. This Fest is an outstanding annual community event each year and will be again this year.

“The Arts Fest gives us all an opportunity to enjoy a lot of different forms of art. There are some really talented artists who come from all over to participate”, said Johnson. “I especially enjoy the Children’s Art Yard. I think kids need to experience art firsthand and watching them do their projects is so much fun”, she said.

The grant from US Bank is used to support the Children’s Art Yard and makes it possible for the Art Center to provide materials for Art Yard participants. The Art Yard is available to all children from toddlers to teens and is a popular part of the annual Arts Fest. The participating children get to take the art project home when it’s finished.

“US Bank thinks it’s important to support worthwhile projects”, said Johnson. “We are proud of our continued community involvement and the Sagebrush Arts Fest is one of the best. It celebrates the talented artists who display their art collections and it also focuses on the talents of musical artists, craft artists and others.”

The Sagebrush Arts Fest offers many fine arts, crafts, handmade jewelry, pottery and metal art, and a variety of musical entertainment and mouthwatering food choices. There will also be face painting, caricatures along with the Children’s Art Yard. Special this year will the presence of the Pocatello Zoo and the Pocatello Animal Shelter. Animal prints will be made on site for you to enjoy!
