The Carnegie Cultural Center is putting out a call to all local alumni..."Show us your stuff!" As part of a year's worth of temporary exhibits focusing on the arts, an exhibit featuring work by alumni is scheduled to run from May 17 through August 3. An artist open/house reception is scheduled during Heartland Days on Saturday, June 14 from 11 am to 2 pm. The guest of honor will be retiring NHHS art instructor, Dave Prehm. Since many class reunions are held during the Heartland Days celebration, the open house will provide a great opportunity for former students to connect with Prehm and fellow classmates as well.
Art work from alumni of all classes (not just those from Mr. Prehm's tenure) is being sought for the exhibit. The art work needs to be at the Carnegie Cultural Center, 7 N. Water Avenue, New Hampton, by Wednesday, May 14. Each participant may submit one large piece or several small pieces of art work that they have created at any time following their graduation from high school. A statement including the title of the art work, the artist's name, graduation year, plus a brief statement regarding post-high school art-related pursuits or activities and the alumna's present occupation should accompany the art work.
Anyone having contact information for alumni artists is also asked to contact the artists or the Carnegie Cultural Center who will in turn contact the artists.
For more details or to pass on contact information call the Carnegie Cultural Center at (641)394-2354, email email@example.com or visit www.carnegieculturalcenter.org
