Meridian en Blanc

Saturday, July 22, 2017

Memorial Park

Inspired by the Dîner en Blanc concept born in Paris and adopted by many cities around the world, Yankton Area Arts introduced a similary chic picnic on the Meridian Bridge in 2014. Intending to celebrate the arts in a beautiful outdoor setting, this has become an annual fundraiser to support arts programming in the Yankton area.

Embracing a temporary move to Memorial Park, this year's Meridian en Blanc will incorporate lawn games and a 1920s theme. Guests are invited to dress in theme or the traditional white dress of the event. In addition to artists on site, those attending will be part of an interactive art project titled "Peace by Piece". The artwork will be on display in the community in the fall.

Music by: Mark VII

Mark VII is the small version of the Sioux Falls Big Band. Comprised mostly of SF Big Band members, the group has performed steadily since February 2000. Much of the music was inherited from the Jack Reynolds orchestra, a popular Sioux Falls based band that played all over the area in the 60s, 70s, and 80s.

Live artistry by: Jane Stimpson
