The Public Art Program is intergeneral, family-friendly and free of charge. A year-round music series features local talent every Friday from 7-9 PM. Featured artists include singer-songwriters Amber Beth, Brett Winters, Carolyn Weber-Starling & Mark Hovel, Todd Schroeckenthaler, and many more talented musicians!

The first Friday of each month highlights Open Mic Lab from 7-9 PM, an experimental venue for artistic sharing. This free event is dedicated to the performance of all things creative, including, but not limited to comedy, film, music, poetry, storytelling, and theatre. You can sign up to share your talent or show up as an engaged audience member to support our local artists. Inspiration Bar is open for most public art events.

Public art also includes our weekly musical group practices:

  • The Northwoods Ukers
  • The Woodland Strings
  • R.O.C.K.- "Rock Out and Create for Kids" high school music group

Music events are typically livestreamed via our Facebook page.

Our public art category also includes special summer programming, including art exhibits, artist discussions, and outdoor activities in our courtyard.
