October is National Arts and Humanities Month

Folsom Parks & Recreation invites all residents to join in this month’s celebration of the arts. The fall Rec Guide includes a wide variety of fine arts, dance, and theater classes. Most of these programs take place at the Folsom Art Center, located at 48 Natoma Street. The Art Center is also home to The Gallery at 48 Natoma that features the work of professional and emerging artists, and the Community Gallery that showcases the work of students and amateurs. The exhibits on display throughout October are “Pushing the Boundaries,” with fascinating color and light studies, mixed media, and unique sculptural works by acclaimed artists Carol Ladewig and Kim Thoman; and the 13th annual Folsom Focus amateur photography contest entries. Other events celebrating Arts and Humanities Month include dance performances, concerts, art demonstrations, museum exhibits, and festivals. Find a complete list of all events at www.folsom.ca.us.
