Art Center Happenings

in the Park, June 28
“The Comedy of Errors” will be performed on June 28 at the Pine Meadows Golf Course at 6:30 p.m. This play has more intrigue, twists and turns, and characters than our national political race. You will witness a play involving twins, romance, madness, prison, mistaken identities, and so much more.
Come early for some great food and drink and pull up your lawn chair or blanket for an incredible evening with the gorgeous Judith mountains as the backdrop.
We want to thank the Elks trustees and the Pine Meadows golf course for being sponsors of this performance. In addition, we thank Eye Care Associates, the Moen Family Dental group, Joan McMahan, the Family Wellness Center, and the Fergus Count Medical Society for sponsoring this event. As always, this is free to the public.

This is a reminder that if you have decorative or art-related items that might need new homes, please drop them by for the Third Annual Street Sale, on July 16, from 8 a.m. until noon. The proceeds from this sale will benefit future projects for the Art Center.
