CASA GRANDE -- Hundreds of people turned out Sunday to celebrate the arts in Casa Grande.
The second annual CG Mosaic Festival was held near Florence Boulevard and Sacaton Street.
It featured interactive art, musical performances, dance groups, storytelling and street-style performances as well as food.
Activities and performances were held at the BlackBox Foundation Woman’s Club Theater, The Museum of Casa Grande, Casa Grande Art Museum and a stage set up near Sacaton and Third streets.
“We’ve had a good turnout,” Rina Rien, Casa Grande Main Street director, said Sunday. “I’ve had a few people tell me that they didn’t know some of these things were here before today, so mission accomplished.”
This year’s CG Mosaic Festival included performances by students in Casa Grande Elementary School District schools.
The CG Mosaic Festival was organized by the City of Casa Grande, Casa Grande Main Street, BlackBox Foundation, The Museum of Casa Grande, Casa Grande Art Museum and The Studio of Dance.
It’s supported in part by a Flinn Foundation Arizona Creative Communities Institutes follow-on grant for rural arts and cultural organizations.
