The COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of so many events this summer, including ArtSplash. Siouxland Public Media’s Sheila Brummer with the online evolution of this annual festival to meet the times.
Every Labor Day weekend for 26-years, thousands of people packed Sioux City’s Riverside Park for ArtSplash. The annual event showcasing more than paintings, pottery and photography.
One of summer’s biggest event has been canceled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Sioux City Art Center on Wednesday announced the 27th annual ArtSplash art festival will not take happen this Labor Day Weekend.
Art Center Director Todd Behrens says they look forward to bringing the festival back in 2021 with some exciting changes. The Art Center plans to hold a “virtual” Artsplash instead on Facebook.
