We hope everyone's enjoyed a lovely summer and look forward to fall in Vermillion and at the Washington Street Art Center. We have several events to look forward to in the coming months. Throughout October and into November, the WSAC will be sponsoring several kids and teen art classes, from beginning acrylics to multimedia exploration. This month, with the help of the USD sustainability program and the Vermillion Community Garden, we will be hosting our second annual Art of Sustainability! There will be art projects for kids, pieces by local artists available for viewing in the gallery, demonstrations for sustainable lifestyle, a potluck, raffle drawing, speakers, and music. The event will be from 2:00PM until 8:00PM on October 20th. Later in the month, USDs Student Art Association will be holding a Graphics show in our gallery, this event will take place on October 31st. In November, we will host another Graphics show with the SAA on the 15th. Finally, on November 16th we will host our annual Chili Blues celebration, tasting chili while enjoying great music, company, and conversation. Submit your own chili or vote for the one you like the most. Hope to see you at some of our events!
