Lakewood Arts Week..Fun, Fun!

Well, we sure had a fun time this week! The City of Lakewood designated May 31-June 5 as Lakewood's Arts Week - an event they hope will become an annual occurrence from now on. Under the skilled direction of Lakewood's Cultural Arts Specialist Lorene Joos, a committee composed of representatives from most of Lakewood's cultural organizations had met for over a year to plan this special celebration. Arts Week was kicked off with an open house on the plaza in front of the Lakewood Cultural Center. We had a booth on site with LAC members Lynnette Kupferer and Cindy Ahrenkiel on hand to meet the public and to provide art demonstrations. Both were busy throughout the afternoon - Lynnette worked on a small mosaic and let some of the young visitors "help" glue down the glass. Cindy worked on her oil painting and told people all about LAC. Other members stopped by during the event. Pictured are Marje & Glen Walsh chatting with Ann Quinn. The event concluded with a wildly popular performance by our own Borscht Brothers, Bruce Geller & Jay Halpern. The afternoon was lots of fun thanks to wonderful help from the City of Lakewood staff - and of course the volunteer participation by our members! We got to meet many new people from the community as well as learn more about the other arts groups located throughout the City.
