SFS ART FEST 2020 "Inner Limits" where art meets science!
Art inspires science and science inspires art - creativity in expression and problem-solving enhances our continued human evolution of discovery. This new theme provides exciting opportunities to explore how technology influences how we see the world, what the future holds for your imminent visions, connotations of breakthrough-terminologies, expressions, and new information.
The SFS ART FEST kicks off on Thursday, April 30th with the Preview & Art Showcase Reception where over 500 works of art will be on display. Enjoy the evening meeting artists, film directors, and actors experiencing art with the community. On Friday, May 1st, the festival opens to celebrate creativity in our community by supporting art programming and help raise funds for creative youth programs. This event unites arts awareness and provides an opportunity for business and community partners to market their unique services to impact inspiration that can flow into surrounding communities and beyond! This free local event is filled with vivacious music, entrancing art, live trompe l'oeil exhibitions, independent film showings, engaging installations, chalk artists, delicious food, craft vendors, pop-up artists, jewelry vendors, and so much more. Visitors can immerse themselves in this year’s “Inner Limits” Film Fest with film screenings in the open courtyard of the Clarke Estate, which was built in 1919 by architect Irving Gill. SFS Film Fest will be proudly featuring Radheya Jegatheva as our Featured Filmmaker whose worlds through a lens are magnified by his profound prose in extraordinary depth.
Beyond the visual motion of the courtyard is the neighboring dimension of Angel Acordagoitia, this year’s Featured Artist who visually immerses optical perspectives with his stunning luminescent artwork. Our premiere Guest Artist is Mindy Johnson who is an award-winning author, historian, filmmaker, educator, musician, and a leading expert on women’s roles in animation and film history. Artists will be exhibiting a body of work in a Pop-up Gallery Style Exhibit.
