Pearson Lakes Art Center to present Artrageous March 17 

The Pearson Lakes Art Center will present national touring group, Artrageous on Sunday afternoon, March 17.

Performer and Artreach Coordinator Lauri Francis says, the group combines many different mediums to create their interactive show.  "Firstly, it's a ton of fun.  We try to combine as many arts as possible onto one stage.  So, you'll live fine arts, big live paintings, live music, vocalists and dancers are all performing at one time.  We do a lot of audience interaction, and even, we throw in some of our roots with life-sized puppetry.  So, it's a whole bunch of things rolled into one, and it's just a really joyful, creative way to celebrate the arts."

She adds that the group will hold their “Artreach” Program prior to the show.  "It really reaches kids of all ages.  We do about a 45 minute presentation of the show and telling kids how important the arts are for your brain and for your health, and then we do some questions and answers."

The Artreach portion of the program will begin at 1 pm, with the Artrageous performance at 3 o'clock on Sunday afternoon.
