Painters, musicians and other artists will share their creations during Art in the Heart: An Inclusive Art Festival from 6-8 p.m. Nov. 12 in Finch Fieldhouse Room 113.

Twelve vendors will be present. The vendors include photographers, jewelry makers, wire wrappers, candle-makers and painters. 

Some vendors are students — Jordan McNamara, a wire wrapper and Raelynn Jewison, a painter, jewelry maker and candle-maker.

Several pieces of artwork will be available for purchase and a silent auction will be held.

Two registered student organizations will perform live music: Central Harmony, an a cappella choir and Justus League, a hip hop group. Dancers from the Central Michigan University Club Sports Hip Hop Team and the Infusion Dance Team RSO will also perform.

Entrance is free, but attendees are encouraged to donate money at the door. All proceeds will go to Art Reach of Mid-Michigan, a local community arts organization that holds cultural programs and sells local artists’ work.

“It’s a great way to relax,” said student organizer Amari Hughes. “(The festival is) a chance to buy something for yourself and enjoy what Mount Pleasant and CMU have to offer."
