The Basin City Arts Center Board of Directors invites our community to an Open House on Thursday, December 16 from 4 to 8 p.m. A special presentation will be held at 7 p.m. that will recognize the many supporters of the upstairs renovation project at the Basin City Arts Center, a nonprofit organization developing and supporting the arts in the Big Horn Basin.
The Open House will begin on the first floor with a continuous slide show presentation created by Mark and Mary Hillman who have been instrumental in the upgrading of this historic structure that once served as Basin’s movie theater for many years. The slide show will give the community members a brief overview of the history of the Basin City Arts Center and its rejuvenation starting with a grant in 1998 that renovated the first floor. With that beginning many concerts, school plays, movies, and other events have been held on the first floor.
Now, with most of the second floor renovation complete, community members will be invited upstairs to sign the guest book and enter the Ballroom. Upon entering, let the imagination go to visualize all the fun and worthwhile activities that can take place here for the benefit of our community.
Refreshments will be served as the community is invited to view the Joel Ostlind Etchings Art Exhibit on loan from the University of Wyoming Art Museum. Go on a tour of the new facility and receive an update on future plans to finish the renovation of the third floor. Mark Hillman will be available to answer any questions, and the members of the Basin City Arts Center Board of Directors will be happy to show off our new community arts center and dream along with you about all the possibilities (see right sidebar for a list of the Board of Directors).
At 7 p.m. everyone will be invited to the first floor for the special presentation that will recognize and acknowledge the many who have supported this project.
So, mark your calendar for Thursday, December 16 4 to 8 p.m. for the Basin City Arts Center Open House that will celebrate the opening of the second floor!
