Honors students Sydney Kasok, Jordana Deutsch, and Julia Tuason volunteered to help in the Kids Village area again this year at the Music is Art Festival in Buffalo on Saturday, September 10. This is the 9th year RIT students have come out to help— along with Graphic Design Professors Lorrie Frear and Carol Fillip.
Music is Art hosts this free annual festival that highlights the artistic talents of individuals and groups from the area. With over 100 bands on six stages, eight live DJ stages, two dance stages and a Kids’ Village area, the Festival has become Buffalo’s most extensive exhibition of local art, dance, theatre, spoken word and music. The Festival draws over 20,000 throughout the day to be entertained by this multi-sensory event that is part concert, part bazaar, street fair and art gallery.
