WHAT'S HAPPENING AT THE 1912 CENTER
Last Market of the Season:
Saturday, March 2, 2013
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
It has happened. The last Winter Market of the six market season is coming up and we don't want you to miss it. Come shop at the Winter Market on March 2nd at the 1912 Center. Over 30 vendors will be selling original arts, crafts and even consumables for you to browse. This is a great opportunity to connect with your community friends while shopping and eating locally.
Friendly Neighbors will be providing food for sale for a delicious lunch option and Sister's Cookies will have drinks and desserts for sale during the entire market from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Donations of non-perishable food items are encouraged and may be deposited in the collection bins provided by the Human Rights Task Force. They will make sure that your contribution gets to our local food banks during the post-holiday giving lull.
This is you last chance to shop a market until May when the Farmer's Markets open back up downtown. So don't miss it. We look forward to seeing you at the 1912 Center.
Free tax help at the 1912 Center

"Centerpieces" Art Show
Show runs through mid-April
The current exhibit in the hallway gallery features a subject that is near and dear to our hearts: the 1912 Center itself. Titled "Centerpieces," this show features work by the artists in our community using the 1912 Center as their theme.
Local artists were encouraged to participate by creating original works to be featured in this exhibit. Some of these pieces were made in the 1912 Center during classes offered in the Arts Workshop while others are works made of the 1912 Center. Some of the artwork is available for sale during the exhibit.
Viewers' choice awards from the opening evening of the exhibit went to Bobbi Kelly for her "Center Pieces" triptych and to Linnea Sheneman for her "Tiny Pieces" artwork featuring 3" square detailed drawings of the desk in the 1912 Center office and her sister reading in the Senior Center.
"Centerpieces" will be up through mid-April, so please plan to stop by anytime to visit the show that features our wonderful 100-year-old community building, a worthy subject indeed.
Forget-me-nots on a 1912 new year's post card.
Heart of the Arts, Inc. (HAI) would like to extend a special thank you to the members of the community who have supported the 1912 Center over the past year.
The 1912 Center is now 100 years old and we all can be proud that this beautiful building is still around for generations of Moscovites to enjoy. By giving to the 1912 Center's restricted building fund through membership in our Cornerstone Club, and by hosting and/or attending events at the 1912 Center, you are helping to keep a community resource strong, adding value to this important historic structure.
In 2012 a large number of individuals and businesses supported the renovation projects with their contributions. Click on the link to see our 2012 Cornerstone Club Donor List and be sure to thank everyone you know on the list for helping to make the new parking lot possible. Lighting on the parking lot is happening as the fixtures are available and landscaping will happen at a community planting day later this spring. A proper 1912 Center sign will be in place by summertime as well.
But there is much more to do. Did you know that we still have over 50 windows to replace and two full floors of interior work to do, renovations that include putting in the basic infrastructure of electricity, plumbing, sprinkling systems, heating and cooling, let alone building the spaces out for specific uses? Your help at this time will continue to make more possible each year. So we are asking everyone to consider making a bigger donation to Heart of the Arts, Inc. in 2013. We can build so much more for our community with your financial help.
Our boarded-up windows can be replaced as soon as we have funding. Have you thought about sponsoring one for yourself, a family member or friend, or your reunion class year from Moscow High School? For $1,912 you can pick a window to sponsor and we will install a plaque that will stay with the facility into its next 100 years. Now how is that for a personal legacy?
