World Arts Celebration 8, Indonesia!

The dance, music and art of Indonesia will be showcased at Cecil College’s Elkton Station, where the college’s Performing Arts Program will present “World Arts Celebration 8, Indonesia!” at 7 p.m. Sept. 16.

This year’s annual event features a performance by Santi Budaya – a company of dancers and gamelan musicians – and a fashion show of batik fabrics in the Performing Arts Hall. Julie Cerquira, from the United States-Indonesia Society, will offer information about scholarship programs for study in Indonesia.

Immediately following in the lobby will be “A Taste of Indonesia.” In addition, the World Arts Exhibit in the Elkton Station Gallery will display ivory and wood carvings, masks, puppets, jewelry and batik from the collections of the Indonesian Embassy in Washington, D.C, Eunice Veasey, and Mie Mie Joe Strickler.

Tickets for Santi Budaya cost $5 and are required to be reserved in advance by calling 410-392-3366.

Cecil College students will be admitted free with a valid ID, but must also reserve tickets. Admission to the gallery is free. Located in the lobby of Elkton Station at 107 Railroad Ave., and adjacent to the Performing Arts Hall, the Elkton Station Gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Thursday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday.
