The city’s thriving visual and performing arts community will be highlighted with the inaugural Greensburg ArtsWalk on April 14.

Presented by The Westmoreland Museum of American Art, Seton Hill University, Westmoreland Cultural Trust and Think Greensburg, the event will feature exhibitions, performances, demonstrations and participatory activities by arts organizations, music and dance groups and individual artists from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The celebration will include:

• Art Happenings at The Westmoreland and three other Art Happens locations installed around downtown buildings and gateways. The Happenings, inspired by the Art Happens artwork, will include music and dance performances, performative art-making and more.

• Free admission all day at The Westmoreland.

• Exhibitions of senior student artwork in the Harlan and Jodee Harris galleries at the Seton Hill University Visual Arts Center. Studios will be open for visitation and student demonstrations, and the Art Yard will host entertainment and performances throughout the day.

• Open house at the Westmoreland Cultural Trust’s Incubator for the Arts studios, with resident artists creating and discussing their work. The Trust’s Art in the Alley Project will host live music, face painting and interactive public art.

• Exhibition by regional artists at DV8 Espresso Bar and Gallery.

• Participating downtown businesses will feature special offers for ArtsWalk visitors.

An ArtsWalk map and schedule of events will be available online and at Courthouse Square.

“In addition to having arts activities for all to enjoy throughout the day, ArtsWalk will highlight our Art Happens public art project, which features art installations in more than a dozen locations throughout downtown Greensburg,” said Catena Bergevin, The Westmoreland’s deputy director/director of advancement, in a news release.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
