Noon to 2 p.m. at the Beck Center

Please join us for the third annual Community Celebration of the Arts. All are welcome to attend this free, family fun event featuring art activities, door prizes, entertainment, and refreshments. This is our way of saying "thank you" for supporting the arts in our community. Entertainment throughout the event will be provided by students from the Beck Center’s arts education programs. Attendees can also enjoy an afternoon of hands-on art activities and musical and theatrical experiences including:

• “Try on an Instrument” by playing various band and orchestral instruments
• Experience dancing with Beck’s talented students in the dance studio
• Dress up in costume and take your picture on stage in the Studio Theater
• Learn drumming and music making with the early childhood music staff
• Show off your sidewalk-chalk skills in Beck’s front courtyard
• Create “spinner art” and a clay pinch pot
• Proudly wear your personally made CATS mask

At 1 p.m. on the Mackey Main Stage, a programming spotlight will highlight Beck educational programs and includes special performances by Beck students. A Beck Center update and professional theater season announcement will also be shared. The afternoon will include giveaways, prize drawings, and complimentary refreshments.

Additionally, guests can view two art exhibits now on display at the Beck Center: FOCUS 2011 Photography Exhibition presented by the Beck Center for the Arts in collaboration with the Solon Center for the Arts, and Don Hisaka: The Cleveland Years presented by the Cleveland Artists Foundation.

Following the open house, guests are invited to attend the 3 p.m. matinee performance of CATS, presented by Beck Youth Theater in collaboration with Beck Center’s Dance Workshop. Tickets are $12 for adult/senior and $10 for children/student (18 and under). This performance is expected to sell out quickly.
