Olive Road Arts Block Party

Arizona Arts and its neighbors hosted the first-ever Olive Road Arts Block Party on Oct. 1 with over 500 guests enjoying several food trucks, a DJ, and performances from UA Dance, Eller College of Management’s Ellervator Pitch, a CAPLA VR experience, the Speak-Easy Xylophone Ragtime Band from the Fred Fox School of Music, and a performance from the School of Theatre, Film & Television students of stage combat, plus, tabling with student organizations and free gallery access.

The Block Party brought together the academic departments, exhibitions and performances sectors of Arizona Arts, as well as our neighboring colleges: the College of Architecture, Planning, and Landscape Architecture and Eller College of Management. The Block Party coordinated efforts with members of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona and Graduate and Professional Student Council.

“We invested in the planning and production of the event, so as to work with and not for our first community, University students,” said organizers Chelsea Farrar of the University of Arizona Art Museum and Meg Jackson Fox of the Center for Creative Photography. “We wanted students who are either new to campus or are less familiar with Arizona Arts have an opportunity to become acquainted with — and find themselves excited about — the vibrancy that is our campus community for the arts.”
