Our new building opens the door to exciting partnerships with the arts, offering a wealth of opportunities for creative collaboration with our community. The top floor of the building will have a dedicated gallery space where we will bring in curated exhibits from artists inside and outside of our church family. These galleries will rotate throughout the year. In other areas, the building will feature art from our congregation members and community members who want to share their creative gifts and talents with us as a church.
In the café, we are especially excited to have the opportunity to feature and sell art from our partnership with UMAR. UMAR has an extraordinary art program that offers fine art vocational services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
In addition to the regularly rotating art, we will have two murals in the new building. One mural will be on the youth floor of the building and has been a collaborative effort between a team of youth artists and Mural Ninjas. Learn more about the amazing work of Mural Ninjas here. On the bottom level of the building, a team of youth and young adults will be working with community muralist Justin Klaus to bring that space to life.
This building will be a vibrant and dynamic space that is a true reflection of who we are as a church and the partnerships we want to continue to foster with our community.
