It’s time to get your hands dirty – with some good clean fun in the ceramic studio of Memorial Hall.

The second annual SculptureTour Salina Symposium is giving people a chance to touch art this week.

Phyll Klema, Executive Director of Salina Downtown Inc., stopped into the KSAL Morning News with a look at what’s coming up as organizers prepare for a huge block party.

“For me, when it comes to working with clay – there’s nothing between you and the medium,” she said. “I really enjoy it.”

This year the ceramic symposium is under the direction of artist, Conrad Snider, from Newton Kansas.

His “hands on” sculpture workshop is free and open today, form May 13-16, from 1:30-8:00pm. Sculpture Tour Salina is set to unveil 26 new sculptures to enjoy and vote on this weekend.

The unveiling Block Party begins at 3:00 PM with free live entertainment at 3 locations downtown.

Live entertainment includes performances by “Flying Debris”, the Salina Community Theatre, Dru Davis, Kanza Fencing Club, Stepz Dance Studio, the Swedish Folk Dancers from Lindsborg.

The outdoor exhibit runs from May 18th until April of 2014, with the public voting for “The People’s Choice Award.”

The winning piece will then be relocated to a permanent site somewhere in Salina. .

Last year’s “People’s Choice” was “Sweet Kisses” by Marianne Caroselli which can now be found in Oakdale Park.
