Coronado State of the Arts – January 8 Community Event

Mark your calendar and plan to attend the inaugural “State of the Arts” event on January 8, 2019, at the Coronado Community Center in the Nautilus Room. The event is FREE and open to the public. It begins with a Social Hour at 4 p.m. featuring displays of artwork and books by local authors and artists, information on more than a dozen local arts organizations and exhibitions on Coronado’s public art, arts education opportunities and CoronadoARTS website and social media platforms. It will also be an opportunity to view the C3 Gallery Exhibition “In Defense of Art” featuring the artwork of local U.S. Military Veterans, active U.S. Military members and their immediate family members. The Coronado Community Jazz combo band will perform along with a performance on the “Sit A Spell and Play a Tune” public art piano. Sarah Kaufmann, aka The Cheese Lady, a nationally-known and Guinness World Record cheese sculptor, as well as a Coronado resident, will be creating a special piece of artwork celebrating the arts in Coronado during the festivities.
