2018 Showcase


Showcase event on Friday, April 20th
Hallway gallery through May

The Center on Disabilities and Human Development is proud to present a student-led project that was created to encourage adults with disabilites to express themselves through art. Partnering with local art instructors and University of Idaho student volunteers, beautiful works of art have been created. The artwork and drumming performances will be presented at the showcase event on Friday, April 20th in the Great Room from 5 to 7 p.m. Come on out to meet the artists, instructors and volunteers, enjoy free refreshments and no-host beer and wine and purchase artwork and greeting cards to support the program.

The 1912 Center is lucky to get to have a portion of the April 20th showcase up through the end of May in the hallway gallery. If you are not able to make it to the showcase, be sure to stop by the building before the end of May to see self-portraits, prints and watercolors pieces made by the artists. The vibrant colors and variety of media make this a fun show for the whole family.

Idaho Gives 2018

24 hours of online giving
Thursday, May 3, 2018

Idaho Gives, a program of the Idaho Nonprofit Center, is a one-day, state-wide fundraiser designed to help raise money and awareness for the nonprofits that make Idaho a great place to work and play. It is important to connect donors with the great work that we do in this state which is why the 1912 Center has participated in this program since its inception in 2013. We strive to be a hub for our local nonprofits to have a great and inexpensive place to gather. Your support for the 1912 Center during Idaho Gives has a powerful ripple effect in the greater Moscow community, helping us to renovate more space that can be used by our nonprofits and community members alike.

2018 is the 6th year of Idaho Gives. In the past five years of fundraising, we have raised over $31,000 for the 1912 Center's renovations from 641 donors. $8,125 of that is prize money that we have won by working together on the fundraising day to have the most unique donors to our organization. Heart of the Arts, Inc. is deeply grateful for the support of this historic renovation project.

Let's do it again this year, everyone! Click on IDAHO GIVES 2018 to get to the link to make your 2018 donation. All donations made beginning on April 20th will help us to get a great start on the leaderboard on the giving day. And donations made on May 3rd from 11 p.m. the night before until 11 p.m. on Thursday, May 3rd will be eligible to be drawn from a hat to win a golden ticket prize for the 1912 Center, adding more fun to the giving day and value to your donation. Just $19 does the trick. Many hands (or donors) make light work! Can you join us to make a big impact in what we can get renovated for the community?

Need more information about the giving day? Please contact Jenny Kostroff at (208) 669-2249 or by email at 1912Center@gmail.com.

Plaza Concert Series

Summer Concert Dates in 2018

We are gearing up for another fun summer out on the front Plaza and wanted to make sure you save the dates for the free evening concerts this summer. On the fourth Monday in June, July and August, come out from 6 to 8 p.m. and enjoy a free concert and bring a picnic dinner or purchase food from MELA (specializing in Bangladeshi foods). Beer and wine will also be for sale to add to the evening. During intermission you can take a tour of the unfinished upper floors to see what the next renovation projects will be at the 1912 Center.

On Monday, June 25th we will be featuring the Community Band of the Palouse playing a variety of up tempo tunes. For July 23 and August 27 the artists who will perform are still being determined, so stay tuned for more details. 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) will be replaced during a summer project, and the monument sign on the corner of the property will finally be put in so that you will know that you are indeed at the 1912 Center! We are also 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.

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!
