THE SEASON 2015 – 2016

WinterFest Visual and Performing Arts Festival

The twenty-first annual WinterFest Visual and Performing Arts Festival has come and gone. Nearly 30 artists showcased their works in our lobby, and audiences enjoyed the hilarious antics of The Reduced Shakespeare Company and the warm jazz styles of the incomparable Nnenna Freelon. We hope that you were able to partake in the WinterFest festivities this year!
