Some of the programs that will benefit from your support include, Cirque Oranj, circus arts summer program nurturing performance and creativity in the education of local children, as well as Artfull: New Seen, a show of a local emerging artists in the Community Gallery.
“Inspired by an event at the Edinburgh Festival; ‘A Play, A Pint, A Pie’, ValleyArts wanted to celebrate Robbie Burns night with a twist. Our board chair, Scott Schultz, has a love of good tequila, and that became the starting point for ‘Roberto Burns’,” explained Jeremy Moss, Deputy Director of Valley Arts. “We then layered the event with Mexican fusion appetizers, a live music performance, and of course poets - five of them! As a fundraiser for ValleyArts, we invite you to be part of this special evening.”
