Stevens Point art festival showcases Midwest artists

STEVENS POINT (WAOW) - UW-Stevens Point celebrated the work of more than 50 artists from across the Midwest Sunday.

In its 42nd year, the Festival of the Arts showcased artists of all kinds.

The show featured painters, photographers and sculptors among others.

Artists there said they love displaying their work like this because it reminds people how valuable art really can be, even in everyday life.

"The design of your car. The design that you have on your silverware. You could get along without all that stuff, but you would miss it if it wasn't there," said Ken Swanson, a Racine artist.

Organizers estimate about 2,000 people came through to take a look at the variety of pieces.
