Art festival features Animation Workshop

It is free and open to all ages. The Little Bloomsbry Foundation is presenting its 5th annual festival of Art, Music and Storytelling and it opens Thursday at 181 North 200 East in Logan. The hours are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day. Little Bloomsbury Executive Director Dr. Brenda Sun says Little Bloomsbury’s mission is to promote peace and hope in an uncertain world by increasing the community’s preparedness to survive and thrive. One of the highlights comes to light at 6 p.m. when talented Logan High School Sophomore Alex Monik conducts an Animation Workshop for peace and hope. Monik says it is not just for young people but for everyone. “I heard the art style Anime, which is Japanese animation, is sort of getting a bad reputation for being violent,” Monik explained on KVNU’s Crosstalk show Wednesday. “So parents are really going away from animation. “The reason for that being is because a lot of the Anime shows are on a network called Adult Swim. They can’t be featured on anything like Cartoon Network but they’re not all very violent. I think that’s another thing I’m going to touch on in the Animation Workshop.” There will be Japanese magic with Deceptionist Richard Hatch at 8 p.m. The grand opening Friday at 6 p.m. will feature several well-known artists.
