Artist Joe Castillo, a current contestant on NBC's America's Got Talent, will bring his unique program, SandStory, to Penn State DuBois in September for a special 9/11 show.  His performance on campus follows his July 24/25 America's Got Talent appearance.   


SandStory is a live-art presentation, performed to music, in which Castillo produces stunning images with sand upon a light table, as it is projected on large screens for the audience to view.  He previously appeared at Penn State DuBois in February.


Born in Mexico City, the artistic hub of Latin America, Castillo grew up in a bilingual home, surrounded by art and the cosmopolitan culture of this international city. He developed a passion for telling stories using artwork early in life and SandStory was born.


The performance is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 11, in Hiller Auditorium.  This event is free and open to the public.
