NORTH LOGAN — If you need art for your walls, you might want to look on the lawn — not your lawn, but the lawn of the Crookston place in North Logan.
The Old Crookston Homestead, at 1491 E. 2300 North, was built in the late 1800s by former Cache County Sheriff Nick Crookston. The shady yard of the historical home is the site of the annual Art on the Lawn fundraiser, showcasing the work of more than 40 visual artists and musicians.
“Art on the Lawn” was started in 2005, by Crookston descendant Lucy Watkins and her husband Cary Watkins. The annual event raises money for art programs and education in the Cache Valley.
This year’s festivities start with a “Sneak Peek” art show and silent auction from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. June 29 in the old home.
The main event runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. June 30. There will be art for sale, as well as demonstrations of plein-air painting. Musicians will perform throughout the day, and there’s a car show planned.
A chili cookout starts at 4:30 p.m., with ceramic bowls made by Logan High School art students; the cost is $10.There will also be Aggie ice cream, hot dogs and drinks for sale.
Art on the Lawn admission is free.
