"Sweet Home Sauk County" Summmerset Festival of the Arts 2012
Directed by Lauren Love, MFA, PhD
The Summerset Festival of the Arts is an annual multi-disciplinary arts celebration that engages participants in a variety of arts experiences. Plans (official workshops/performances/exhibits will be posted as they are confirmed) for this year's second annual festival include collaborations with the Sauk County Arts Association to work with students; the Baraboo Farmer's Market where contestants in a creative culinary competition will grab their fresh ingredients; the Alzheimer's Foundation and the local Purple Cow Poets to present a reprise of the Alzheimer's Poetry Project; Chicago based filmmaker and Baraboo native John Mossman who worked with UW-BSC students on a shoot in Southeastern Wisconsin for his latest film; and many local authors, artists and arts and humanities experts. Workshops will be offered in songwriting, multimedia art, playwriting, creative writing, book repurposing, flute playing, stage combat, and Latin dance, among others. Summerset is also pleased to feature local bands, including Sacre Blues, whose members will present a lecture/demonstration on the history of the blues with UW-BSC history professor Dr. Michael Jacobs, before performing a set in our opening night Mini-Blues Festival themed "Sweet Home Sauk County." Additionally, Summerset will work closely with downtown Baraboo business owners to cross promote the Festival with their debut Circus Heritage program this summer, including sharing excerpted performances that will be appear at each event.
