    Fairy Crowns at Pierogi Fest

    After some unexpected obstacles, we were able to make some pretty awesome Fairy Crowns on Saturday during Pierogi Fest. There are some more pre-made crowns in the Studio window. You can stop by and purchase one to take with you for $10. You can also purchase some of the remaining art from the Live Art Competition. The Whiting/Robertsdale Historical Society will be in the building on Sunday to talk about Al Odlivak, “Whiting’s Norman Rockwell”

    Call for Art

    Metropollenation is open and ready for submissions! This exhibit is all about the tree that grows in Brooklyn, the weed that grows in your sidewalk, and the trees that separate the north- and south-bound lanes.

Submissions are due July 11. July 12 is our buffer day for those last minute squeeze-ins.
