Dine Through Time

A progressive dinner
to celebrate Moscow's heritage.

Join the Kenworthy, 1912 Center, and the Latah County Historical Society for a progressive dinner that will walk you back through time. This mostly historically accurate evening will feature appetizers, dinner, and desserts representing the three decades of each historical venue.

Travel back to the 1920s with appetizers and champagne cocktails at the Kenworthy starting at 5:00 PM with the evening program, short films about each organization starting at 6:00 PM. A multi-course plated dinner from the 1910s will be served starting at 7:15 PM at the 1912 Center, followed by dessert at the McConnell Mansion with live music performed by the Cherry Sisters Revival.

Dine Through Time is a collaborative fundraising event that benefits each of the participating non-profit organizations. Your 100% tax-deductible donation of $100 will open the doors to an evening of fun, food, and festivities. The funds raised by donations to Heart of the Arts, Inc. for the 1912 Center will go into the building renovation fund to further the work we are doing at the building.

Interested parties should contact Jenny Kostroff in the management office to reserve a seat for the evening. Stop by or email at 1912Center@gmail.com.

Artwalk 2017

Featuring the work of Ernie Weiss through August 2017

For Artwalk 2017 the 1912 Center is proud to feature the work of Ernie Weiss in a solo show in the hallway gallery through August.

Ernie Weiss was born and raised in Yakima, Washington area. His love of nature came from growing up on an apple orchard in the Naches Heights district and exploring the nearby mountains, streams & rivers. He has a degree in Architecture and MBA from WSU. He has been expressing his love for nature and architecture and other subjects in his paintings. He has participated in over 30 group shows and 10 solo shows. He is a current member of the Palouse Watercolor Socius and along with watercolors, he works in oils as well.

What's Next?

The facility now has all the windows replaced and it looks beautiful thanks to our fantastic community donors' support! Windows may still be adopted for a $1,912 donation that may be made over time. Leave your own legacy at the 1912 Center with an engraved plaque on the window you choose and help the next construction project at the facility. We may look all renovated from the outside but there are 20,000 square feet of space to get restored upstairs in the building to create more gathering spaces for our community.

In 2018, the roof (at the end of its 15-year life span) will be replaced during a summer project, and the monument sign on the corner of the property will finally be put in so that you will know that you are indeed at the 1912 Center! We are also in the process of raising $2 million in funds to be able to complete the second-floor renovations that will include a small auditorium, a community living room, an historic classroom, bathrooms and more. Come check the space out on a tour during one of our summer Plaza Concerts or Winter Markets so you can see first-hand what we are raising money to do.

Questions about the renovation project and what comes next? Please contact Jenny Kostroff in the 1912 Center office at (208) 669-2249 or e-mail the 1912 Center at 1912Center@gmail.com and she will happily share with you what is happening at the building. Thank you so much for your support and shared excitement for getting more space renovated inside the 1912 Center in the next three years!

In the meantime you can visit our Facebook page for weekly updates on happenings in the building and photo albums of past events in the spaces to help you plan your next reason to come to the 1912 Center.
