OXFORD, Miss. – The second annual Art-er Limits Fringe Festival, set for Aug. 6-8 in Oxford, promises to give festival-goers a unique experience by combining Mississippi’s culture, art, literature and music all in one weekend.
With 70 events in just 72 hours, you’re sure to experience something new about Mississippi.
Events throughout the weekend will be held at the University of Mississippi Museum, the Square, the Powerhouse and several spaces around Oxford.
On Saturday, the University Museum will host workshop tours, a blacksmith and ironworks demonstration and a steamroller printmaking demonstration, where Ole Miss alumnus and artist Frank Estrada will crank out giant prints of art.
“The University Museum is thrilled to be participating in this year’s Fringe Festival,” said Rebecca Phillips, communications coordinator. “I think it’s wonderful for Oxford to have another arts festival that is fun for all ages and gets the community involved with local and regional artists. The town continues to produce new, interesting ideas and events, making all the months of the year busy and exciting!”
The festival works with local and regional artists to expose them to a wider audience, but it works to give students a behind-the-scenes experience as well.
Theater design student Kwasi Buffington will be doing lights and backstage work for two of the productions during the festival.
“The festival is unique in that is connects all the different parts of our community from local artists, the university and regional artists,” Buffington said. “It also helps artist and crew build a network of artist to work with in the region. Working on these events gives me a chance to work with the artists, test my ideas and implement my theater skills.”
