A Celebration of the Life of Cyril Lixenberg
Woof Woof & Meow Meow for Harbor Humane Society
Washington Square Art Gallery
Friday, May 15
5:00 - 8:00 p.m.
It may not be Animal Month, but we at Washington Square Art Gallery think animals deserve recognition EVERY month! So we are inviting you to an ART EVENT just for our furry friends and companions that are so good to us all year long. Recent studies have shown that pets reduce heart disease, lower blood pressure, relieve depression and increase longevity in their owners. There is no pill that does all that!
Pet supplies &/or donation gets you in! The 400 pets they house everyday need:
Pet food (they rely solely on donations),
Kitty litter (they go through 4000lbs/month),
Paper towels (you can’t imagine how many),
Bleach (thank goodness) and other pet items.
They serve 5,000 animals yearly, and need $75,000 yearly for medical supplies, vaccines and medications.
The event is catered by Pereddies Restaurant (so you can count on good food!).
Bring a friend, enjoy great art, participate in a raffle, acknowledge pets everywhere and support our local pet rescue – Harbor Humane Society.
Bluegrass Jam Sessions
Thursday, May 21
5:30 - 8:00 pm
The Holland Area Arts Council and the Hope College Music Department have cooked up another partnership idea!
You've loved the Brown Bag Lunch concerts, and now, under the leadership of Hope's Nate Roberts, we are offering the community the opportunity to experience American folk music with our new series, Bluegrass Jam Sessions!
On the third Thursday of every month, a House Band of area musicians will play in our Padnos Gallery for backup. We welcome you to bring your own instruments and join in. The first hour (from 5:30 to 6:30) will be designated specifically as a "Slow Jam," so musicians of all levels should feel welcome to come and play! There will be lots of sharing musical traditions, but most of all - lots of fun!
This program is FREE and we encourage all ages to attend. There is no requirement to participate in the jam - you can just come and enjoy the music.
You imagined a world with no more art.
It's time to know more art.
