Second Floor Stage

An Afternoon Concert
On Sunday, Sept. 22nd at 2 p.m.

Heart of the Arts, Inc., managers of the 1912 Center, invite you to attend a free concert on Sunday afternoon, September 22nd at 2p.m. You can come hear in person what we are so excited about with the rennovation of the second floor of the 1912 Center. That afternoon Adrian Crookston, Paul Anders and friends will perform on the second floor stage so that the audience can enjoy the fantastic acoustics that the room provides. This is your chance to be in the room where it happens!

During intermission we will tour everyone through the plans for the second floor renovation and provide snacks in the various rooms of the second floor. This is a great chance to become familiar with what your donations make possible for our community at the 1912 Center. We hope to see you there!

Moscow Welcome Table

Free Community Dinner
Third Monday of Every Month

A new way to connect over a meal is now happening in the Great Room of the 1912 Center once per month and you are invited to attend this free community dinner. The goal of the Moscow Welcome Table is to serve people from all walks of life and connect them through a shared experience over a gourmet meal. Each restaurant style meal will feature different chefs from the region and will serve several courses and dessert. Seatings take place from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, October 21st. The Moscow Welcome Table will serve a free meal every third Monday of the month, so if you cannot make the October dinner, the next meal will be on Monday, November 18th.

This event is brought to you through financial donations from members of our community and all are welcome to participate. Heart of the Arts, Inc. is partnering with Food Not Bombs of the Palouse, Soil Stewards, Backyard Harvest and local chefs to create different meals each month. If you are interested in volunteering, by yourself or with a group, to help cook or serve during the Monday meal, please contact Jenny Kostroff at (208) 669-2249 or by email at 1912Center@gmail.com. We are also looking for more community partners to help keep this project going into the future so reach out and become an evening meal sponsor! We deeply appreciate the support!

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.

The roof and skylights were replaced during a project over the summer months of 2018 and the building is all water tight. We are in the process of raising $1 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, a game room, bathrooms and more. Come see the spaces on a tour during one of our events so you can see first-hand what your financial gift can 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 next year!

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.
