C of I to host Langroise Holiday Arts Fair
2010. 11. 30.
For the fifth consecutive year, The College of Idaho will host the Langroise Holiday Arts Fair. The fair features handmade crafts such as jewelry, pottery and paintings created by C of I students, faculty, staff, alumni and guest artists. This year's fair will be held on Friday, December 3, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. inside the Langroise Center for Performing and Fine Arts.
“The Holiday Arts Fair is important because it highlights the creativity of our students, faculty and staff, and allows both the campus and general community to appreciate the talent present at the College,” said C of I history professor Dori Johnson, the event's organizer. “Further, it offers students an opportunity to display their work and to experience the business side of life as an artist.”
The fair also serves as an opportunity for the local community to shop for art and holiday decorations while supporting a good cause. A percentage of the sales go toward the Kenneth Mann Scholarship fund at The College of Idaho.
“The Kenneth Mann Scholarship gives two awards annually, one to an art major and one to a psychology major,” Johnson said. “The scholarship is not currently endowed, so this event will help contribute to the building of the endowment.”
