Project progresses; summer camps set

The Wassenberg Art Park is coming along so quickly, due to the diligence of work crews, Wassenberg staff, and community support. We cannot wait to share this wonderful new addition to our community. Stay tuned for ribboncutting updates.

Wassenberg Art Center’s Art Park project is coming along nicely.

The 62nd annual Wassenberg Art Exhibit begins on June 9 with an opening party from 6-9 p.m. Great art available for purchase, free appetizers, cash bar, and live music by returning friend Jereme Wheeler. Join us for good art, good food, conversation, and great friends.

Summer camps are just around the bend. For 2018, we will offer three separate summer camps. Each session will offer different, thought-provoking projects, such as Squiggle wire portraits, felted bugs, monster masks, life-size sunflowers, and mandalas. Instructor Emilie Fisher, who has a master’s degree in fine arts from the University of St. Francis in Fort Wayne, Indiana, is an experienced summer art camp instructor. Emilie has taught the last few years at notable camps in Indiana and Ohio.
