LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The Little Rock School District (LRSD) has kicked off its four-day Artistry in the Rock festival.
The event got underway Tuesday at the Hall of Industry at the Arkansas State Fairgrounds (2600 Howard Street).
The festival celebrates talented students from Kindergarten through 12th grade.
The free event, showcasing creative and performing arts by LRSD’s top students, is open to the public and has become so popular that the district expanded it from three to four days.
The Thursday evening lineup includes performances by “Voices Without Borders,” All-City bands featuring middle and high school students, a silent auction of student/teacher art, and a scholarship awards program. Proceeds from the auction items benefit scholarship recipients who will be awarded this year.
