Meeting our goal

2021 Musical Arts Celebration

Music is a universal language that doesn’t require words to express, emote or validate what you feel. Music is a form of therapy and has a way of making us feel more connected to others. During this pandemic, we are pulling back the curtain on music’s magical power to heal. In collaboration with Main Street Gallery, we present musical selections performed by Dr. Mezraq Ramli and his friends Jeanmarie Riccobono and Lauren Murphy.

Thoughts from Melanie Parke, Painter

The Old Art Building is a place where culture is championed and artistic ideas are nurtured: a place where everyday community life entwines with a vital arts and humanities hub and center.
