A MESSAGE FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
As we enter a new year, I want to thank you for helping us weave arts into the social fabric of the Lehigh Valley's rural, urban, and suburban communities in 2023. Your continued support inspires us to make art together as we make a difference. Thank you for connecting with us.
With Gratitude, Mark Fitzgerald Wilson
THAT'S A WRAP
From breathtaking performances to thought-provoking exhibitions, 2023 was a year of milestones: the center's 25th anniversary season, the first-ever Pennsylvania Arts & Humanities Convening, Bandaloop's vertical dance on the library walls, and the Traveling While Black virtual reality installation. Please enjoy these snapshots from the past year. We look forward to creating many more moments of joy with you in 2024.
