artwalk

“Collegiate Candescence” is the theme for February’s ArtWalk.

Bird Thomas, The Curator of Fun Learning Experiences for The Center for Contemporary Arts, says this month’s theme highlights collegiate artists from all local colleges and universities.

"We’ve got the brightest and the boldest of all the light bulbs in the box going to our local universities and they are pretty much a bright spot in our community," Thomas says. "They are artists, they are poets, they are actors they are dancers and we love the idea of being able to share them with the rest of the community."

Anyone roaming downtown Abilene Thursday might end up surrounded by children dressed as characters from the film, “Frozen.” The popular Disney movie will be the theme for this month’s ArtWalk. Temperatures in Abilene have been a perfect fit lately but that is just a happy accident. Bird Thomas, Curator of Fun Learning Experiences at the Center for Contemporary Arts, said she planned this month’s theme way back in May.
