Instructor Ronan Kyle Peterson teaches a wheelthrowing class entitled “Plates and Platters” at the ArtsCenter on Wednesdays, and I dropped by a class! The class wanted me to clear up a common misconception about wheelthrowing–it’s not like “Ghost.” Judge for yourself below!

This weekend the ArtsCenter is proud to present Hidden Voices: Home is Not One Story- Exploring the Heart of Homelessness. Through performances, exhibits, animations, writings and audio clips, visitors will get to explore the lives of some of society’s most forgotten groups including homeless women veterans, foster children aging out of care, refugees, families escaping domestic violence, immigrants, families in long-term shelter housing, LGBTQ teens and the chronically homeless. Performances are this Friday and Saturday at 8pm. Below are some pictures of an exhibit in the ArtsCenter lobby. Don’t forget to click more!

Justin Roberts and the Not Ready for Naptime Players

Filed under: Kids, Music — Tags: , — Lyndsay Booth @ 1:16 pm

Last month, Justin Roberts and the Not Ready for Naptime Players brought their high energy concert to the ArtsCenter.  Justin and his band played songs about the sun, siblings, Willy the Whale and crossing guards.  The audience really got into the show, and the floor in front of the stage quickly turned into a dance floor. Check below for some photos, and as always, don’t forget to click on more!
