Special Drive Thru Kent Creativity Festival on September 26

Join us for a special drive-thru Kent Creativity Festival! On Saturday, September 26, 2020, you will be able to participate in a hands-on art project – all from the safety of your own vehicle!

This socially distanced event will take place from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the parking lot of Rockwell Hall (Corner of Main Street and Lincoln Street) on the Kent Campus of Kent State University. Simply arrive during the 2 hour window and follow the signs.

The Art Project: Building a Community Tower

Are you ready to be creative? Together we're going to build a Community Tower! Originally created by Kent State Art Education major Megan Carney, a Community Tower is a way to show what community means through art.

When you arrive at the 2020 Kent Creativity Festival, you will be given instructions and materials to decorate a foam panel with what community means to you. Each panel will then be used to construct a tower in the Rockwell Hall parking lot. This event is FREE and open to all. Masks are required.

How to Participate

  1. Enter the Rockwell Hall parking lot, located at the corner of Main St. and Lincoln St. in Kent, OH. All members of your party must wear a mask!
  2. Follow the signs and volunteers to a designated parking spot.
  3. A volunteer will bring your vehicle enough supplies for all participants and provide instructions. 
  4. Decorate your foam panels with "what community means to you."
  5. When finished, turn on your headlights.
  6. Watch the "Community Tower" grow!
