Catching Up! - Frosty Friday, Pillars of Frederick book signing,

Frosty Friday has come and gone once again and judging by the number of folks on Market Street appears to have been a success. The annual event brings many people from the surrounding region into downtown Frederick just as the town appears in it’s most festive dress. While there was a chill in the air it was the perfect evening to enjoy the sights and sounds of the town.

The Cultural Arts Center again hosted the Artists Market featuring many of our local area Artists. The event was visited by Frosty the Snowman, the infamous Grinch, and a wandering group of carolers singing songs of the season.

On Tuesday December 13, 2011 the Cultural Arts Center hosted a multi-author book signing party for The Pillars of Frederick project. Conceived and illustrated by area Artist Yemi the book features brief vignettes of the Fredericktonians pictured in the book by local writers, historians, and dignitaries. The event included most of the authors of the brief vignettes accompanying the individual art works. You can stop by and see the original paintings as they have been installed on the back of the McCutcheons building facing East Street.
