A first-year arts festival is being held this Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 25 and 26, at a new Marana park.

"Marana Crossroads Fine Art Festival" is being held at Crossroads at Silverbell Park, 7548 N. Silverbell in Marana.

Marana Crossroads Fine Art Festival is featuring gallery-quality work from artists in a multitude of media, including glass, photography, jewelry, painting, sculpture, wood, fiber, mixed-media, ceramic and drawing.

Music, food and culinary creations are added attractions.

For a small fee, children can indulge in an inflatable play land. They can also enjoy the free kids' art corner, with art and crafts, clowns, face painting and magicians. Young Rembrandts will also be on site to teach youth drawing lessons, "introducing concrete ideas and techniques that enlarge and enrich their visual vocabularies, their imaginations and their minds," a release said.

The event is produced by Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance, with help from the Town of Marana Parks and Recreation Department.

"Our programs and events in Marana are always met with tremendous support from the community," said Kate Marquez, executive director of SAACA. "We are talking about a group of people who really get behind local artists and musicians like you wouldn't believe."

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
