Hearing our Northwoods 2024

Hearing_our_logo_2024-01

Warehouse Community Arts Center emphasizes COMMUNITY through diverse offerings involving meaningful human encounters with the arts. For the past three years, public exhibits and related artistic programming surrounding the themes Connect to the Northwoods (2021), Living WITH the Northwoods (2022), and Seeing Our Northwoods (2023). Through these experiences, we successfully activated the arts to forge community connections across cultures while establishing a model highlighting an accomplished artist whose work becomes the hub for related programming.

Our 2024 program, Hearing our Northwoods, aims to expand and deepen the connections established over the last three summers, using the arts to promote cross-cultural education, conversation, conservation, and respect for community, local history, tradition, and environment. 

Ergo Sum: a crow a day exhibit

This year's exhibit will feature a touring exhibition from the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin. The exhibit “Ergo Sum: A Crow a Day” features 365 small panels of mixed media work by visual artist Karen Bondarchuk, as way to honor her mother, who was in the later stages of Alzheimer's disease. Karen created a crow a day for 365 days in a row as a way of marking time that her mother no longer seemed to recognize. The free exhibit will be on display July 8-August 12.
