ArtBeat on ArtStreet

Some of Dayton's best-known fine arts organizations will perform at the University of Dayton for the fourth annual ArtBeat Festival 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28 at ArtStreet.

The ArtBeat Festival is free and open to the public, sponsored by ArtStreet, UD's living/learning arts complex located at Kiefaber and Lawnview streets in the South Student Neighborhood.

The entertainment lineup includes Dayton Contemporary Dance Company, a quintet from the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, the Dayton Jazz Ensemble and Rhythm In Shoes. Also featured will be No Intermission, a vocal group performing selections from upcoming shows at the Schuster Center and Victoria Theatre; SMAG Dance Collective; and "Selections from 365 Days/ 365 Plays by Suzan-Lori Parks", performed by UD theatre students.

"This year's festival will help acquaint UD students with the wealth of arts in Dayton, as well as draw Dayton community members to the UD campus. In addition to the performances, ArtBeat will include information tables promoting a variety of Dayton arts organizations," said Susan Byrnes, festival organizer and director of ArtStreet.

ArtBeat will also host student and local artists selling their work, as well as student organizations selling refreshments to raise funds for charitable causes, she said.
