Art Center’s ArtSplash is a family-centered art festival of exceptional quality that enriches our region’s quality of life by bringing the excitement of the visual arts to our community. ArtSplash is a project of the Sioux City Art Center. Proceeds fund education and exhibition programs and help the Sioux City Art Center remain free to the public.
It is with disappointment that we announce Art Center’s ArtSplash, scheduled for Labor Day Weekend, September 5 and 6, 2020, will not be held due to ongoing COVID-19 pandemic concerns. In consultation with the City of Sioux City, the Art Center explored protocols for festival guests, volunteers, vendors and staff before deciding the best path forward for public safety. While it saddens us to cancel Art Center’s ArtSplash, we know we are making the right decision under the circumstances. We are grateful to our many sponsors and volunteers for making ArtSplash possible, and with their help, we will return in a new, dynamic way in 2021.
While not the perfect replacement, we plan to host a “virtual” ArtSplash event, spanning the week leading up to and including Labor Day weekend. We will do our best to capture and share special parts of ArtSplash’s history and experience by whatever means available until we can be together again in 2021. We will announce more details as the dates for ArtSplash week approaches.
