Davis Family YMCA 5th annual Afternoon of the Arts (10/6/13)

Posted: Updated:

The Davis Family YMCA is holding its 5th annual Afternoon of the Arts at the McClurg Road facility in Boardman on Sunday, October 6th from 1-3 pm. New this year... a meditation walk and tea in the garden (weather permitting) and a juried art show. But I Know What I Like will feature myriad artworks judged by non-professionals (as in, "I don't know much about art, but I know what I like."). The art show is dedicated to the memory of Jon Naberezny, long time professor and Chair of the Art Department at Youngstown State University.

The event, which is free and open to the community, will also feature artists at work, live performances, children's art and activities, and light refreshments. Attendees will have the opportunity to add their fingerprints to the Global Art Project Peace Tree.

The Afternoon of the Arts is being held in conjunction with National YMCA Arts Week. The Y is committed to raising awareness of the importance of art and humanities to the mental, spiritual, physical, and economic well being of the community.

For more information, call the Davis Family YMCA at (330) 480-5656 or email sgray@youngstownymca.org
