Town of Carbondale

Carbondale is calling for submissions for the 2017 “Art Around Town” exhibition. Sculptors anywhere and everywhere can apply.

Although Carbondale Arts has been around since 1974, they're not slowing down. The organization is developing some exciting projects. Executive Director Amy Kimberly and Board Chair Pam Rosenthal discuss the organization's upcoming plans.  

Amy Kimberly, executive director of Carbondale Arts, and Regna Jones, member of the Carbondale Arts' Board of Directors, discuss the organization's events and programs.

Kimberly and Corey Simpson, the Executive Artistic Director for Thunder River Theatre Company and member of the Carbondale Creative District Governing Council, discuss the importance of the designation and the long-term vision for Carbondale and its creative professionals, organizations, and businesses.  

Carbondale Arts Executive Director Amy Kimberly discusses the deep-rooted history of Carbondale Arts and how it has evolved from Carbondale's Mountain Fair into the multifaceted organization it is today. Board Chair Pam Rosenthal also contributes.
