BESA: A Code of Honor
This exhibit, on-loan from the American Society for Yad Vashem, tells the story of Albanian Muslims who rescued Jews during the Holocaust. Albania is the only European country whose Jewish population increased during WWII due to these heroic efforts.
Battle Creek: Where Nobody Need Wait
Kellogg Community College (KCC) students and professors have created this original exhibit, photographing Battle Creek residents who have worked hard to make our local community a place supportive and protective of all peoples, going the extra mile and doing their utmost to "improve the world."
Creating with the Stars
Friday, June 3 from 7-9 pm
Battle Creek has some tremendously talented artists. The Art Center of Battle Creek has put together an evening where you have the opportunity to meeting four of our local artists. “Creating with the Stars,” a fund –raiser for the Art Center, will take place on Friday, June 3 from 7-9 pm.
“We know that “wine and canvas” events are currently very popular,” says Linda Holderbaum Art Center director. “With our event will showcase four of our artists/teachers. You will be able to get to know them, create with them and share creativity and food.” Four well-known artists will be showcased for this first of several events. Craig Bishop, well known painter and teacher at the Art Center, will showcase the art of painting in his area. Head ceramic instructor Dallas Shoesmith will show you the “ins and outs” of working in ceramics. Long time jewelry artist Marty Levy will take ten participants through the journey of creating with beads. And if you have never tried your hand at pastels before, Melanie Wheeler will delight you with her passion about this media.
Participants need to register with the Art Center for one of the four areas of media. The registration fee is $50 per person for Art Center members/ $60 per individual for non-members and $55 each for couples. There is limited space in each area and once one area is full you will have register for another area. The deadline to register, either by phone or by stopping in, is Friday, May 27th.
