Art on the Hill will feature tented venues on the campus lawn to offer visitors opportunities to stroll through the art exhibits, experience live art demonstrations, see theatre productions, participate in children’s activities and enjoy music. As always, the event is will be free and open to the public thanks to the generous support of donors, including the Oklahoma Arts Council and Cherokee Casino Will Rogers Downs.
Event proceeds help fund fine arts scholarships for area students attending RSU.
