Meet Michelle – Future Artist

Meet Michelle.

The Arts Commission couldn’t have in-person camp this summer, so we put camp in boxes for Michelle and her mom  and five other families in their neighborhood.

The whole bunch will be creating a “museum” on the sidewalks and porches to show off their work.

Thanks, David Walden and other community friends for being our partners at “camp” in the crazy summer of 2020.

 

Lynne Pierce Dean

     The Arts Commission is saddened at the loss of Lynne Pierce Dean.  Lynne served the Boyle County community as County Attorney  with integrity and grace.  She was a wonderful mother and wife.  We are very honored to have Lynne serve on the Arts Commission Board twice.  She guided us during our transition years as we relocated our offices out into the community.  When her term as County Attorney was over, she rejoined the Board and continued her service of advising and supporting our work with her legal expertise and care for the goals of providing arts opportunities throughout our community.  Lynne will be missed by so many in all walks of life, and we count ourselves as privileged to have known her.  Our organization was the better for her service and we are grateful for the life she shared with us.

 

Arts Commission programs postponed

The Arts Commission is postponing all events scheduled until April 18th, or until we are advised by the Health Department and our partner organizations that regular programming can be safely resumed.  We encourage all our friends to stay safe and careful.

A little drive goes a long way

Chris Russell gives the Arts Commission a thumbs up!

March 28th is the day.  Stuart Powell Ford is the place. 300 test drivers is the goal to earn the Arts Commission $6,000!  Stuart Powell Ford and the Ford Corporation will donate $20 to the Arts Commission for every test driver between 9:00 and 3:30.  Come on out and take a spin in a beautiful Ford.  Just a few minutes of your time will go a long way to providing arts activities for children in our community.  Preregister at https://d4ur.com/PJM9W to save time.
