The arts are alive in Fairfax, and nowhere is it more present than at Fairfax Spotlight on the Arts, to be held from April 15 through May 9 in and around the City of Fairfax.
The 31st Annual Fairfax Spotlight on the Arts Festival starts on April 15th with a glittering evening at Old Town Hall celebrating three decades of arts in the City of Fairfax. Sponsored by the City of Fairfax in cooperation with George Mason University and the arts community of Fairfax, Spotlight on the Arts continues its commitment to support and encourage the awareness of cultural opportunities in the greater Fairfax community. It has grown into a significant three-week festival and is now considered one of Virginia's foremost arts festivals. With outstanding music performances from leading musicians, quality arts exhibition, dance (both classical and modern) stimulating theater performances, community events including "Artful Living" an Art Show in association with Our Daily Bread, and the hits of last year including Fashion in Motion. This year's Festival of youth, of music, of dance and so much more all highlight the emerging vibrant art scene in historic Old Town Fairfax.
A one-of-a-kind event is planned this year: the dedication of a new public art sculpture, The Dancer, at 2:30pm on April 24 at the Stacy C. Sherwood Community Center, 3740 Old Lee Highway.
