WORTHINGTON - The first-ever Community Arts Celebration will kick off this Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. at Memorial Auditorium Performing Arts Center.

The Artmobile will debut at the event, setting up shop outside the auditorium to offer various free art projects to people of all ages.

Inside the auditorium, live music will be featured throughout the afternoon along with ice cream sundaes. Dancers from Shining Fame Performance will take the stage at 2:30 p.m.

Also in the auditorium, various arts-related organizations will offer information about their connections to the community and what they have to offer. High school students will be selling handmade ceramic bowls, with money going to the Worthington Public Arts Commission (WPAC) for future events.

The celebration is the first of 12 events at which the Artmobile will show up at this summer. The vehicle - decaled by Harvey's Signs, stored with Smith Trucking and paid for with a grant from the Southwest Minnesota Housing Partnership - is finally ready to go.
