Allied Arts Heliotrope Art ‘Xtravaganza
Allied Arts is invading the Heliotrope Hotel for the second time! Artists and organizations will take over the rooms and create interactive art displays, performances and music will be all over the hotel grounds, and food trucks will keep everyone’s bellies full.
All ages are invited to come wander the hotel and grounds, listen to music, participate in immersive art experiences, sip beverages and eat their way through food trucks. Admission for the event will be $10 for adults and free for children under 12.
Artists aren’t handed the keys of their rooms until just a few hours before people begin showing up – so it’s a real feat of planning and swift artistry. They also need to completely move out and leave the room as it was after the event!
Rooms will vary from performances to installations to having items on display for sale. Featured artists and organizations are all active Allied Arts of Whatcom County members and have helped to make Whatcom County known for the arts locally, regionally and nationally.
