What better way to get the latest scoop on the goings on with our renovations at the Van Wert Armory than to have me come and speak with your group? We are so excited about our upcoming move that we’d be more than happy to pack up video equipment and show up on your clubhouse steps to share how cool and dynamic this space is going to be for everyone around Van Wert. Your organization is also more than welcome to come to our place. Things are starting to move fast and what we have to share changes just as quickly. Learn just how the space can function as much more than just an art center. Learn how art is imperative to good education and learning processes and how can art improve economy? Learn why this building’s design and location are perfect for a vibrant community art center. If you have an interest in a presentation please contact us at the number or email listed below.
