REO Town: Beware of the Art

Here at the Impact, we want to bring you the best events and activities in the Mid-Michigan area all year, so stay up to date with the Impact89FM News team be the first to hear about what’s happening in your community.

REO Town is a district directly south of downtown Lansing that has become a hub for Michigan artists, and this Saturday, the REO Town Commercial Association is hosting their fourth annual Art Attack. REO Town President, Ryan Wert, describes the event as, “a traditional art fair combined with an eclectic local music festival”, and while the event will host 15-20 art vendors and 10 bands, the real stars of the show will be the artistic competitors, where 7 to 8 individuals will compete to create the best works out of an assortment of materials. Past years have featured such items as reclaimed materials from gutted demolish-ready houses, but this year, attendees can enjoy REO town favorite food and beer as they watch the artists cut, paint and weld donated city trash cans over the course of 6 hours to create their masterpieces.

The event is tomorrow, Saturday 9/05, from noon to 9pm in the Riverview Parking Lot (1123 S Washington Ave). More information can be found on their Facebook page.

Students explore alternative food options

Food has always been very important to college students. These days, alternative options for meals such as food trucks have presented MSU students with more options than just the typical campus meal plan. Impact’s Alex Scharg reports on where students are getting their food.
