Due to the ongoing public health crisis presented by the COVID-19 virus, dates, times, venues, and other key details of Imagination Celebration events are subject to change based on the latest health and safety guidance from the State and County. Arts Orange County will work to update the current status of every event, but also advises checking in with the organization and/or venue before committing to any attendance, and further advises following all current recommendations from the State of California for hygiene, social distancing, and isolation.
The theme for 2021 is:
Imagination Celebration consists of dozens of family-friendly arts events & visual art exhibits at locations across Orange County. Most events are free! This year, the festival will feature a mix of in-person events and online/streaming offerings.
In keeping with our tradition, Orange County students grades 6-12 were invited to submit original artwork inspired by the festival theme to serve as the official poster for the Imagination Celebration. We are thrilled to present the winning piece, A Thought Outside of the Universe, by 15-year old 10th grader Esmerelda Espejo, a student in the class of Judith Westing at Santa Ana High School!
