One of the best parts about living in Kent is having access to big city cultural amenities in a smaller, more personal setting.
Whether its top tier Division 1 sporting events compliments of the athletes at Kent State University or art shows at the McKay Bricker Gallery, Kent is right sized for cultural engagement and entertainment.
Some places have a musuem quality where you’re allowed to peer through a couple of panes of glass to view great works, but Kent invites you in, shakes it up, and offers a level of cultural experience that is hard to find anywhere else.
This weekend, one of Kent’s icons of cultural engagement, Standing Rock Gallery, has announced their 8th Annual International Short Film Festival to be held in downtown Kent. Here’s all the details.
