The weeklong arts celebration at North Idaho College will wind down with an array of activities Friday, from music writing to dissecting cats.
This year’s Popcorn Forum, titled “An Affair with the Arts and Humanities,” has brought poets, artists and musicians to campus all week.
On Friday, the public will get special treatment with tours of campus, desserts at the culinary arts department, drafting demonstrations and more.
NIC faculty will present hourlong demonstrations at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. on poetry, photography and music writing.
The poetry and music writing will be in Boswell Hall lobbies; the photo print-making demonstration will be in the NIC darkroom in Room 155 of Boswell Hall.
Students will lead campus tours departing from the NIC library, on the hour, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. In the afternoon, zoology students will dissect cats.
Visitors can also take in Popcorn Forum events, including a poetry-yelling contest at noon in the Student Union Building.
American Indian oral literature with regional storytellers is scheduled from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Student Union Building.
From 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., artist Marilyn Lysohir will give a sculpture demonstration using clay.
From 11 to noon, University of Idaho art professor George Wray will present a slide show and lecture on “Art in the Environment: Confronting Ecological Issues.”
