Looking for artists

Call to Artists

Receiving Art on Monday, July 30th

Artists are invited to make art for a summer community art show titled Cheers! Art, Agriculture and Alcohol and deliver it to the management office of the 1912 Center on Monday, July 30 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

With strong agricultural roots in our area, this is a chance for artists to celebrate the bounty of the region in their artwork. Work on this theme should be ready to hang and may be available for sale during the run of the show. There are limited spaces for three dimensional work so please contact the 1912 Center at (208) 669-2249 if you want to submit a sculptural piece.

This community art show will host a free opening party on Thursday, August 2nd from 5 to 7 p.m. at the 1912 Center in honor of the region's summer bounty. Everyone is invited to attend. The show will run through the month of August.

Plaza Concert Series

Fifteenth Season of Summer Concerts
Last Concert on Monday night August 27th

It has been another fun summer out on Pall Plaza and we wanted to make sure you save the date for the last free evening concert this summer. On the fourth Monday in August, come out from 6 to 8 p.m. and enjoy a free concert. Bring a picnic dinner or purchase food from MELA (specializing in Bangladeshi foods) beginnig at 5:30 p.m.. Beer and wine will also be available for sale to add to the evening. During intermission you can take a tour of the unfinished upper floors to see the next renovation project at the 1912 Center.

Monday, August 27 Hog Heaven Big Band, a 16-piece big band, will play the music of Glen Miller, Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Louis Prima and more. So that everyone can get in the swing and dance, we are putting the band in the Great Room with the rest of the floor set for dancing. Food and drinks and seating will be out on the Plaza starting at 5:30 p.m. We look forward to seeing you on the Plaza!

What's Next?

Time to head upstairs!

The facility now has all the windows replaced and it looks beautiful thanks to our fantastic community donors' support! Windows may still be adopted for a $1,912 donation that may be made all at once or over time. Leave your own legacy at the 1912 Center with an engraved plaque on the window you choose and help the next construction project at the facility. We may look all renovated from the outside but there are 20,000 square feet of space to get restored upstairs in the building to create more gathering spaces for our community.

In 2018, the roof (at the end of its 15-year life span) and skylights are being replaced during the summer project. We are in the process of raising $2 million in funds to be able to complete the second-floor renovations that will include a small auditorium, a community living room, an historic classroom, bathrooms and more. Come check the space out on a tour during one of our summer Plaza Concerts or Winter Markets so you can see first-hand what we are raising money to do.

Questions about the renovation project? Please contact Jenny Kostroff in the 1912 Center office at (208) 669-2249 or e-mail the 1912 Center at 1912Center@gmail.com and she will happily share with you what is happening at the building. Thank you so much for your support and shared excitement for getting more space renovated inside the 1912 Center beginning in the next two years!

In the meantime you can visit our Facebook page for updates on happenings in the building and photo albums of past events in the spaces to help you plan your next event at the 1912 Center.
