I "Heart" Art

Do you have a heart for the arts? Then downtown Plymouth has a lot to offer you!

Friday, March 12th at 6 p.m., the Heartland Artists Gallery is inviting the public to an opening reception of student art work. In honor of Youth Art month, the exhibit is coordinated by art teachers Vickie Cook, Judy Harness and Toni Trump and includes artwork by elementary students from Washington, Menominee, Jefferson, Webster, and St. Michael's Elementary Schools in Plymouth. Check out the gallery's new makeover!

Guests will not have to walk far to the inSPIRATIVE art center where they can experience another art exhibit titled, "susPENded." This month's inSPIRATIVE art center opening begins Friday night at 7:00. Live music will be from 8 - 10:00 p.m. Featured artists include Sayaka Ganz, Angela Leed and Adam Parsons. Live music by Etna Green and Darkroom. Food by Sisters' Tea & Eatery will be available and special wine service will be provided by The Culver Coffee Company.

This is a one of a kind event that you will not want to miss! Come see "what" and who's hanging around downtown Plymouth. Watch out for the giant penguins that are flying in from above. Show your support for the arts. Join us Friday night. Tickets available at the door, $5.

Youth Art Month (YAM) is an annual observance each March to emphasize the value of art education for all students and to encourage support for quality school art programs. YAM is in virtually every state, in many communities, in schools, libraries, stores, and other places. Anyone can start an observance--an art educator, a parent, a librarian, a youth organization leader, a businessperson, a student--anyone who has a genuine concern for quality art programs and who is willing to work with others in the school system or community. The observance may be small or large, and may range from a single exhibit to a community-wide or statewide project; in fact, the Art Education Association of Indiana sponsors a statewide display in Indianapolis!

We love the arts!
