Returning for its 11th year to Weston Town Center on Sunday, January 29, 2023, from 12:00 pm-4:30 pm, Celebrate the Arts Day is a free family event presented in partnership with the City of Weston, the Arts Council of Greater Weston, and the Weston Music Society, 

Jami Nix Rahn, event director, is looking forward to this year’s event. She notes, “We are always excited to have the participation of Young at Art Museum. This year, in addition to their creative interactive outdoor art studio, YAA will bring their mobile art museum with a special installation by artist Ali Shrago-Spechler who will be on-site to greet guests. “Always a View”… is an exhibition that explores the artist’s matrilineal heritage and family’s journey from Odessa to Miami. Incorporating cardboard and paper maché, she recreates the interior of her family Hotel in the early days of Miami Beach. Event guests can create their own paper maché objects in the Young at Art outdoor studio”.

This popular award-winning family event will feature local school arts and science programs with hands-on activity booths for children of all ages. The 28-foot Graffiti wall will be ready for everyone to express their inner artist. Master chalk artist Ken Mullen will create a 3-D masterpiece perfect for selfies with friends and family. There will be airbrush tattoos and balloon artists showing off their skills.

Weston Music Society Board Member Stephanie Bescherelle will coordinate entertainment performances from our local Middle and High School students supported by professional sound technicians. She says, ‘We are very excited to present on stage the many young musical and acting talents from our local schools! It is a great opportunity for Weston students and parents to ‘shop’ for their future school electives with direct interaction with the members of the wonderful art and music programs. Music instruments will also be presented at the Youth All Star booth and musicians will answer all questions about a violin, a trumpet, a saxophone or many other instruments.  There will even be a chance to try out some of the instruments.”

Annalisa Walker, Special Events Manager for the City of Weston, comments, “The City is delighted to partner with the Arts Council and Weston Music Society to present such a fun and inspiring event.”
