Rhythm on the River presents TRANSIT ARTS
Aug 3, 2012
Columbus Recreation and Parks Department welcomes Transit Arts to Bicentennial Park for a free performance on Friday, August 3 at 8 p.m. as part of the Rhythm on the River performance series.
The Transit Arts Performance Group is a dynamic blend of outstanding professional artists and talented youth artists inspiring and challenging one another to honor our roots while creating fresh new work. Rhythms rise from the drums, turntables and dancing feet, as poets, hip-hop emcees, break-dancers, DJs, musicians, singers and visual artists flow together to create a breathtaking, and interactive, multi-disciplinary performance experience.
Transit Arts, young artists on the move, is a youth development program of Central Community House, based in the seven sites of the Columbus Federation of Settlements and working in partnership with the Greater Columbus Arts Council. Transit Arts is rooted in a rich history of youth and community engagement and enlists young people, ages 12-21, in intensive programs of coaching/mentoring by outstanding professionals from the creative industries.
