Art, Music Festival Gets Underway Today

It's a couple of weeks late, but the annual Gogh Van Orange art and music festival is set to open today.

The fair traditionally is held in mid-May but was postponed this year because of unpredictable weather. "We really just wanted to build the excitement," festival chairman John Silverman said, jokingly.

More than 50 juried artisans, painters, glass artists, sculptors and others will display and sell their work during the two-day event at the downtown plaza around the traffic circle.

The event will include live blues, jazz and big band music, gourmet food booths and activities for children.

Admission is free to the event, which runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and Sunday at Glassell Street and Chapman Avenue.
