On behalf of our extended family and friends, we would like to thank the Greater Augusta Arts Council and its executive director, Brenda Durant, for the excellent Arts in the Heart of Augusta festival this past weekend.
From the beginning to the end, this well-organized, three-day event was outstanding.
The colorful festival guide provided by The Chronicle made it easy to find the location and time of each stage activity. Each stage also had large posted schedules.
The Global Village, an international food court, had an awesome array of delicious ethnic foods. The visual arts street fair was lined with a myriad of colorful displays.
The continuous live stage performances showcased many talented artists. This was particularly true with the closing ceremony at the Jessye Norman Amphitheater featuring members of the Augusta Dance Coalition. Their program was outstanding, as was the special weekend event.
