Update on the status of Broad Ideas and the Galena Center for the Arts:

 

At this time, due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) the Center for the Arts and specifically our Broad Ideas arts show has been shut down.  This difficult decision was made for the health and safety of patrons, performers, volunteers, and Center staff.  We are following the recommendations of Governor Pritzker to close until March 30, at which time we will determine if it is safe to open again.     

 

All our upcoming events: Love, Loss, and What I Wore, Songwriters Showcase, Broad Stretch, and Spoken Word are currently postponed.  These will be rescheduled when it is safe to do so. 

 

Our new goal is to “reopen” the show when it is safe, essentially extending our show.  When the Galena Center for the Arts reopens, we will reschedule our postponed events and hope that you will join us in a “Broad Reunion.” 

 

We will keep you posted on details regarding normal hours resuming, new event dates, and clarification about the original artwork pick-up date of April 4, 2020.  We do not know at this time if that date will change or if it will be safe for people to come pick up their work then.  All we can say is to stay tuned.  Please have patience with us as we work together to minimize the spread of this virus. 

Updates will also be posted on our facebook page and website.  Our hope is that you will agree to keep your work up in the show once we know the details of what that extension will be. 

 

In the spirit of Broad Ideas, BE KIND TO EACH OTHER AND YOURSELF!
