December 2018

DeltaARTS and our community have accomplished an amazing feat! Together we have exceeded the Assisi Foundation half million-dollar challenge grant for the renovations in the Glenn P. Schoettle Arts Education Center gallery, theatre, and offices, and for the enhancement of DeltaARTS imaginative arts education programs for children, families, educators, and seniors. We now have a state- of- the- art performance space with a stage, curtains, LED lighting and upgraded sound systems. There is no way to describe what a difference this has made for our Crittenden Youth Theatre productions, Arts Openings, Sundays with the Arts, Lunch with the Arts, Young Authors Symposium, Educator Professional Development programs, and facility rentals.

This aesthetically amazing building, designed by architect, Pat Magruder, as a medical education building, is now the perfect building for the community to experience the arts. Thank you to all of our supporters.

In regard to program enhancements, this campaign has enabled us to expanded Wolf Trap Early Learning through the Arts to include four additional schools, increased the size and scope of our Lincoln Center Aesthetic Education Educator Workshop, add Sundays with the Arts and Lunch with the Arts, and supplement our Crittenden Youth Theatre budget. The arts enhance communities in so many ways, including culturally, educationally, and economically. DeltaARTS is now positioned to do this much more effusively and effectively. As pledges come in over the next four year, stay tuned for more program enhancements. See you at the Schoettle!
