To celebrate 30 years of community, we are hosting our first-ever Talent Night and Art Auction on Saturday, March 9, from 6:00 – 10:30 pm at The Parkway Theater in South Minneapolis!
Built in 1931 and renovated in 2018 by CLWS parents Ward and Maggie Johnson, the historic Parkway Theater is a regional gem featuring classic 35mm films, world-class performing arts, and other live events. We are thrilled to be working in partnership for this event.
Talent Night Update
Thank you to the many community members who responded to our call for performance acts. We are thrilled with the current lineup and can’t wait to share “sneak peeks” in the coming weeks. Prepare to be WOWED!
We are still looking for alumni (18+), current/alumni parents, and current/former faculty and staff who are interested in having their work featured in our Art Auction. Whether you are a seasoned artist or just getting started, we’d love to hear from you!
All artwork will be on display in the 1st Floor Commons at our Whittier Campus for one week before the auction. This is a great way to share your work with our community and gain exposure!
To help you with your submissions, we’ve compiled a few FAQs:
- What kind of art are you looking for? All kinds! Anything that has been created by you and your fellow community members. Ceramics, handwork, drawing, painting, woodwork, sculpture, etc. Parent Handwork is coordinating a Community Weaving, open to all interested parents and students (more info, below)!
- How many works of art/handmade items will be included? As many as we can accommodate. All artwork will be on display in the 1st Floor Commons at our Whittier Campus for one week before the auction. This is a great way to share your work with our community and gain exposure!
- I’m still working on my piece. When does my artwork need to be completed by? Artwork does NOT need to be finished at the time of submission. You may send an image of the work in progress, or a similar work you’ve completed, along with your submission form. All artwork will need to be completed and delivered to the school by Friday, March 1.
