Dia del Sol Celebration 2013!

Student artwork, gourmet gastronomy, dance performances - those are only a few of the memorable components of this year’s annual fundraiser, Dia del Sol. If you've never been to Dia del Sol, it's a wonderful time that provides folks the opportunity to celebrate and support our work here in the Grandville Avenue community through a variety of means: a silent auction featuring artwork donated by local artists, direct purchasing of gift certificates to local entities and a selection of hand-made crafts (many of them created by our own community members!). Not only that, but there's delicious cuisine, a dance performance by one of the Cook Arts Center's dance troupes, and displays throughout the building where one can get an idea of what our programming is like at GAAH.

One of the ways in which this year’s event differed slightly from past years was that it featured artwork created by a select team of Cook Arts and Cook Library Center students who ranged in ages from 7-13. Their finished pieces looked amazing hanging in frames above bidder stands! Another memorable event was the unveiling of the Cook Arts Center's beautiful new mural that Pottery Studio Director Madeline Kaczmarczyk created. If you have any name suggestions for our mural, please let us know by giving us a call or emailing Bethany at arts@gaah.org. A huge thank you to all of our sponsors and friends who came to celebrate with us for this year's Dia del Sol. For those of you who missed it, we hope to see you next year and thank you for your support in spirit!   

Who can refuse such mouth-watering, Italian-themed food?! We sure didn't!

Tah-dah! Our new mural is STUNNING and is located in the Cook Arts Center's Lobby. Check it out!
