CAC at Epicenter of City’s Cultural Celebration


Williamsport celebrates the artsThe Community Arts Center offered a dazzling venue for the Governor’s Arts Awards on Wednesday, the keystone event in a weeklong cultural celebration throughout the city. Outside the Arts Center, in three tents on West Fourth Street which temporarily was renamed “Avenue of the Arts” dancers, musicians, artists and crafters showcased their gifts for an appreciative public undeterred by autumn’s chill. Gov. Edward G. and Judge Marjorie O. Rendell presided over the public awards ceremony, a 28-year gubernatorial tradition honoring outstanding Pennsylvania artists, arts organizations and patrons who have made significant contributions to the advancement of the arts. This year’s honorees included actor Michael Keaton (perhaps best known for his roles in “Beetlejuice” and the two Tim Burton-directed “Batman” movies) and Williamsport residents Barbara Hudock and Sascha Feinstein. Earlier in the day, the facility hosted “Out of Our Minds: Learning to Be Creative,” a free keynote address by Sir Ken Robinson about creativity and education.
