The Arts can be fun, entertaining, and are a part of the vitality at the Northfield Senior Center. On June 7, starting at 7pm, there will be a celebration of all art-related programming at the Center with an event called the Art-full Splash. The event will start with a concert by the Seasoned Singers, the Senior Center’s own women’s chorus, followed by the official Opening Reception for the June exhibit in the NSC Gallery. The reception will include tantalizing refreshments (some home-made), artist-talks, and a demonstration of chainsaw carving. This event is open to the public, and will appeal to all ages.
The Art-full Splash will also showcase the use of $4096 awarded last fall in an Arts and Cultural Heritage grant received from the South East Minnesota Arts Council last. This money has enhanced the arts programming at the Center through improvements in the lighting of the Gallery, installation of a climate control system in the piano, financial support for the Seasoned Singers, increasing control of the lighting over our stage area, and purchase of different heights of legs for the Center’s portable stage to create risers for concerts.
