Bringing the Arts to our Community at KPAC & Outside our Doors
2017 Festival of Trees presented by the Downtown Paris Association. KPAC wanted to enter a tree, but we wanted to do something a bit ... different or out of the box, so to speak. So we did a Gnome Tree.
The first picture is on set-up day, when our gnome first made his way downtown. He was so cute!
In the second picture I had just arrived on the day of the judging.
The third picture shows me with City Council Member, Jackie Jones...and we won the "Out of the Box" Award.
We certainly got the award for which we were aiming! Many thanks to our set designer, Jarrett Kinsland, who took the vision and made the gnome come to life, and thanks to Kimberly Kinsland for her help! -- Rhonda Stanton, KPAC Manager
In the fall of 2017, the DPA once again presented "Scarecrows on the Square." In trying to come up with an idea for our scarecrow, we were considering iconic arts-related images to go with the arts. When the comedy and drama masks found in theatre came to mind so did another thought....TWO-HEADED SCARECROW! So that's what we did ... and won Best of Show!
Thanks to Jarrett Kinsland for construction, Rhonda Stanton for sewing, and Kimberly Kinsland for lettering our sign.
