Letters: Arts Council of Princeton Thanks Artists and Supporters

To the Editor:

In celebration of our 45th Anniversary, the Arts Council of Princeton sends its heartfelt thanks to the community for their continued support and participation. The Arts Council was founded in September 1967, and so we aimed to fill this past month with vibrant anniversary festivities.

Thank you to the hundreds of artists, families, and friends who joined us for our early-September Annual Members Show, which featured 165 artworks by member artists.  We are delighted to share that our Free Fall Open House on September 9 garnered both record attendance and class registrations. Our mid-month 1960s dance party was festive and fun—we grooved to music alongside a giant screen featuring vintage rock-n-roll footage and videos. Finally, we produced an Age of Aquarius benefit concert with renowned singer-songwriter Francis Dunnery. It was wonderful to see so many new and familiar faces here throughout this exciting month.

Thanks to everyone who helped make our events successful including: McCaffrey’s Markets, Lucy’s Ravioli Kitchen, Lindt Chocolate Shop, Halo Pub, Bai Brands, the bent spoon, small world coffee, Princeton Record Exchange, Emily’s Café & Catering and CoolVines. We send special thanks to our performers at the Fall Open House—who set the tone and created lots of excitement on our terrace and front steps—Lisa Botalico and the La Feria dancers, Uma Kapoor and her Bollywood dancers, and Zoe Brookes and the Stone Soup Circus troupe. Our gracious and informative artist-instructors rounded out a superb Open House.  Finally, we thank our extraordinary volunteers, who on a daily basis work in so many ways to build community through the arts.

Sincerely yours,

The Arts Council of Princeton Staff and Board
