College Hill Arts Festival
University of Northern Iowa

Cedar Falls, IA
July 20-21, 2012

The 33rd annual College Hill Arts Festival will be held July 20-21, 2012 on the campus of the University of Northern Iowa at the shady corner of College and 23rd Streets. The College Hill Arts Festival has been named to Sunshine Artist magazine's list of 'Best Fine Arts & Design Shows' in the United States for four of the past five years. Also, the Festival was named the 2006 Event of the Year by the Cedar Valley Tourism Bureaus.

Each year 75 talented artists are hand-selected by three independent jurors whose task it is to fill the Festival with high quality art that demonstrates original design and unique representation of the chosen medium. These juried artists will exhibit and sell their original artwork in categories including jewelry, sculpture, painting, pastel, ceramics, graphics/printmaking, mixed media, fiber, photography, glass, and wood.

The College Hill Arts Festival appreciates the continued support of our generous corporate sponsors and volunteers who contribute their time and effort to ensure a high quality Festival.

Complimenting the artists’ exhibits will be a variety of musical groups performing on stage; a hands-on creative activity for children sponsored by the Hearst Center for the Arts; and the Young Art Collectors Gallery which features original artwork created by exhibiting artists with prices of $10 or less and encourages children [ages 14 & under] to make independent choices about art. There will also be a variety of food vendors to entice Festival attendees. Picnic tables will be located near the food booth and the Performing Arts Stage.
