WORTHINGTON — Arts on the Shore will again be part of the Windsurfing Regatta and Unvarnished Music Festival.
Beginning on Friday afternoon, artists will exhibit their creations and wares along the shoreline of Sailboard Beach. Expected to attend this year are vendors who specialize in paintings, pottery, jewelry, glassware and fiber arts.
Hours for the Arts the Shore vendors will be from 3 to 8 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday.
The Worthington High School AOK (Art-Optimist-Kiwanis) Club will run an art tent for children from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. Various activities are planned.
Mural artists Nick and Nicole Fischer from Aberdeen, S.D., are returning for a second year to complete a 4- by 8-foot abstract mural of a fish. Last year, people of all ages worked together to paint squares that became part of two large murals.
These art activities are made possible through donations from the Worthington Optimist Club and are free to all participants.
The Fischers, members of the AOK Club and the Worthington Public Arts Commission will conduct a public discussion about the importance of public art from 11 a.m. to noon Saturday.
The completed murals will also be dedicated at this time.
