Galena Center for the Arts October Lineup is Chock-Full of Talent
The ongoing Highway 20 road construction continues in Galena. However, the detour will take you past the Galena Center for the Arts, where tremendous progress is underway to transform the bank building into a dynamic and creative community space.
Look for the fantastic new sign, and the recent newsletter shares that the gift shop will open soon, perhaps in the next month.
The Center for the Arts is settling into its new location at 971 Gear Street in historic Galena, Illinois. There's much to look forward to with its newly renovated theater, gallery, and studio spaces.
Upcoming Events Include:
Building Bridges Opening Night Reception Friday, October 7, 5 - 7 pm - Through December 30, 2022
"Building Bridges" means many things, but this exhibit represents the bridges built daily by sharing regional art, music, and theater with the community.
Baskerville! Evening Performances on October 13, 14, and 15 at 7 pm - Matinee October 16 at 2 pm
This lively, fast-paced comedy performance is about everyone's favorite detective solving his most notorious case. This adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle's 1901 classic The Hound of the Baskervilles has lots of intrigue, mystery, murder, and belly laughs.
