Art of all kinds will overflow in Manning during a new event called Masterpiece Manning: Encounter with the Arts, May 6-7.

The downtown streets will shut down at 10 a.m. May 6 to kick off an art party with live music, food trucks and an art show. Student and professional artists will exhibit up and down the street. (Note to artists: Booths are still available.)

Artists of all ages and skill levels are invited to contribute to a community mural, a project that received a competitive grant from the Iowa Arts Council. Later on, from 1 to 5 p.m. May 7, the 712 Film Festival takes over the local high with screenings of films by local students and professional filmmakers.
