Here's what makes us special!
CONFLUENCE: COMING TOGETHER. Prepare to be blown out of the water by this collection of tunes performed and recorded by individuals who live in the Confluence area. Confluence-- population 834 --is a small town full of big talent, and we've brought it all together with this amazing and ambitious project: the production of a community CD featuring local musicians performing in a variety of genres. Listen for deep river gospel, old-timey banjo, folk favorites, classic rock, and piano masterpieces. Making music down by the riverside...only in Confluence! Park your bike and take a listen.
CD's available at area businesses and through the Arts Center.
Suggested donation price: $15. Great gift idea!

FESTIVAL OF SCROLLING PANORAMIC ART. Crankies--otherwise known as "scrolling panoramics"--use illustrated scrolls to present a story, song, or poem using a back-lit box to project art or shadow puppets onto a viewing screen. Crankies are charming, captivating, amusing, moving, and amazing! Our annual crankie festival includes workshops and performances at local schools and culminates in a magical evening show featuring renowned crankie performers from around the country. Calling all crankie people: perform or spectate! Be part of the crankie scene at the Arts Center in February!

Bonus: Art in the Park is a drop-by event ns no preregistration is needed. No charge to participate but donations are greatly appreciated!
