Call for Artists!
The Gazebo Art Festival selection committee invites artists working in any medium to submit their work for inclusion in GAF 2018. GAF is a one day juried event in a shady park just off Macomb’s historic downtown square. GAF is an affiliate of the West Central Illinois Arts Center.
Applications, images and booth fee must be received on or before July 31, 2018; artists will be notified of acceptance by August 7, 2018. Booth fee will be refunded if an artist is not accepted in the jury process.
(Booth Fees accepted via check, cash or PayPal.-PayPal Button can be found under Application PDF.)
In 1981, MTV and Post-Its were launched. Reagan became President and a new HVAC system was installed in the Wyne Building (now home of WCI Arts Center).
That was a long time ago. MTV and the Presidency have seen many changes, but still live on. WCIAC’s HVAC lives on, too, but how long can an old, tired, inefficient system last?
WCIAC needs a new, efficient, reliable heating and cooling system. A new system will be at least 95% efficient, will cut our heating/cooling bills in half, and—very important– we won’t have to worry about when it might just decide to retire itself.
We also want to look to the future. We want to look towards renovating the 2nd floor for public use and have decided we should purchase a system for that floor as our first step in realizing this goal.
But it will cost.
The price is $29,000. We need your help.
We need the community to rally around us and our amazing building. We cannot do it alone.
$29,000. only $17,400 more to go!
No amount is too small.
We will appreciate each and every donation that is made. We are also offering some tokens of our appreciation, listed on the donation form below. (You can also become a member, if you’re not already, on the right hand side of this webpage! Easy!!)
Please listen to your warm heart and help warm the arts at the WCI Arts Center. Simply download the form below, send it in to us PO Box 692 or pay online via paypal.
