Arts in April Offering Ideas
There are so many ways to create a vibrant and engaging Arts in April event. Here are a couple of ideas for events that we would want to attend.
Think beyond the wall. While we love visual art forms as much as the next person, Arts in April is also a place for performance art, performing art and music! Engage your audience with interaction and leave a lasting impression.
Bring creatives together. One of the things we love about Arts in April is that it ties different types of creativity together. We’d love to see a discussion about the creative process across mediums and disciplines. What would happen if a winemaker, a chef, a musician and an artist were all to discuss how creativity plays a role in their profession? We think this would make for a very exciting discussion!
Give people a hands on experience. What could be more fun than enjoying a glass of wine, taking in the Napa Valley landscape AND getting your hands dirty? We would love to see events or tutorials that give Arts in April attendees the opportunity to get in touch with their creative side.
More is more. We think bringing different art forms together is a great idea. What about a thematic grouping of different artists or mediums that explore a central idea? Exhibitions that pursue an idea in various formats are sure to create a buzzing dialogue that leaves a lasting impression.
Be site-specific. Think about the amazing assets your venue has. Is it great architecture? A beautiful landscape? An incredible history? Have an artist engage directly with an aspect of your venue as a way of creating an interesting dialogue and highlighting something special about your brand.
Stay tuned to future Arts Council Napa Valley newsletters and social media posts for additional event ideas. And remember, if you’re looking for an artist or an idea, we are happy to help. Contact our producer, Danielle Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
