A Minot State University event that was once a one-day festivity has grown to a five-day festival and is happening now in the Magic City.
The 8th annual NOTSTOCK Arts Festival kicked off in Minot last evening and there's plenty more to come this week.
NOTSTOCK covers a wide spectrum of the creative arts including music, ceramics, beadwork and theatre.
One MSU Professor says you can find a deep meaning in the work showcased this week.
(Bill Harbort, MSU Art Professor)"The arts are a really important part of our lives. Not just artists and the people that make the art, but it allows us as human beings to explore who we are and our consciousness and the world around us."
The remainder of the event is free and open to the public.
Tonight's activity is a poetry performance from poet Sam Cook in Harnett Hall at 7:00.
Minot Police say Sophia Pepple of New Town was struck by a pickup and killed about 6:25pm Sunday.
In addition, both had recently been released from state prison.
A two-year-old child was killed by a hit-and-run driver in Minot Sunday evening.
They ask if you have any information about the incident that you contact them at 852-0111.
