10th Anniversary Bash

The Whitewater Arts Alliance is celebrating ten years in our home at the Cultural Arts Center (formerly the Whitewater Public Library) at 402 W Main Street. Would you believe that we have hosted over 150 events in our building since we moved in?

We have held special exhibits, such as the Celebration of Latino Arts and Artists in April, have hosted our regular exhibits (the WRAP Show, the Whitewater School District Exhibit, the Fran Achen Photography Contest, Artrageous Birds, and the annual WAA Members' Show), and have infused our events with music, food, and fun. But we are not done yet!

On Sept. 30 at 7:00p.m. we will host a really special evening to celebrate with you and help raise money for future projects. (This is the major WAA fund-raiser for 2017.) We have been amassing a treasure trove for an arts auction. This means that items may be actual artwork pieces or experiences that are arts-related. These include tickets to the Judy Collins concert at UW-W, passes to the Art Institute of Chicago, wine-tasting, art lessons, dance lessons, a session to learn everything you ever wanted to know about beers and making beers, yoga lessons. . . the list just goes on!

So your job now is to SAVE THE DATE! The Bash will be held on Saturday, Sept. 30, beginning at 7:00p.m. There will be delicious food and beverage, wonderful music by Carl Cole and Company, and a lively auction in which you can purchase some great items! Don't be the only person in Whitewater to miss out on the fun!
