Arts Council to host All Hallows Eve Taste of the Arts

Special to The Clinton Courier

Taste of the Arts - OctoberAll Hallows Eve will be the theme for the 2021 Taste of the Arts sponsored by the Arts Council of Clinton. The event will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 30, at the Church of the Creator, 1445 Clinton-Raymond Road.

“We’ll have the Most Creative Mask Contest, along with tasty food and delightful music,” said the Rev. Robert Blanton, Arts Council president. “After a year and a half of wearing masks, break free and express your creativity with a Halloween mask that will surprise your neighbors.”

The mask voted the best will be awarded a signed Wyatt Waters print, with runner-up prizes to recognize other unique creations.

Special hors d’oeuvres are a traditional trademark of the Taste of the Arts event, and Janie Fields, perennial chair of the food committee, said this year will be different only in the careful preparation and hygienic serving of the unique and tasty food.

“We are practicing very careful ways and means of presenting treats in deference to the need for safety in these times,” said Fields.

Music will be provided by the Hinds Community College Steelband, comprised of twelve HCC students. They will be playing traditional Caribbean, pop, and Latin music on four different types of steel drums. The group is under the direction of Paul Heindl, with assistance from Dr. Brian Cheeseman.

In addition to foods and music, original art pieces will be for sale, and a photo booth will capture magical masked persona.

“A membership table will be set up to sign new members and renew memberships for the support of arts in Clinton,” said Blanton. “We encourage any interested persons to join us in the effort to support the fine arts, crafts, and performing arts in the Clinton community.”

The Arts Council of Clinton is the designated arts agency for the city.
