Art can be viewed at the Opening Reception on Friday evening, from 6 to 8:30 PM, on Saturday from 10 AM to 5 PM, and on Sunday from 10 AM to 4 PM. Visitors to the exhibit will vote for their favorite Fine Art piece and Photograph during the show for one “People’s Choice Award” in each Division. The full Call to Artists and Entry form can be downloaded here.
All ages are invited to fold origami cranes in the Cottage-Pisano foyer during the Festival – just follow the trail of folded cranes to the tables!
This activity is organized by the Central Valley Student Chapter
of People to People International, a group that promotes
international understanding and friendship through educational,
cultural, and humanitarian activities.
An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane. Today the origami crane is also a symbol of peace.
