CELEBRATE THE ARTS 2022
Artist meet-and-greets, dance classes, evening concerts — the fourth annual Celebrate the Arts is set to light up Sheridan County with four days of dynamic events from August 25 to 28.
Every summer, local arts organizations come together to present the festival, which celebrates the vibrant visual, literary and performing arts communities at the base of the Bighorn Mountains.
Headlining events this year include Art Alley, a street fair in Sheridan hosted by SAGE Community Arts on Thursday; a concert with famed Hollywood singer-songwriter Lynda Kay at the WYO Performing Arts and Education Center in Sheridan on Friday; the much-anticipated Bighorn Rendezvous Quickdraw at The Brinton Museum in Big Horn on Saturday morning; a performance by John Roberts y Pan Blanco at the Whitney Center for the Arts in Sheridan on Saturday evening; and the Ucross Arts Festival featuring a performance by Jalan Crossland, a reading by Brandon Hobson and an art giveaway in Ucross on Sunday.
In addition, throughout the four-day festival, Celebrate the Arts offers the community pop-in dance and music classes, art workshops and readings, all free and open to all.
