As I am in the last semester of my undergrad, I am in a class in which we are learning to run a campaign. I choose to help create an art showcase for The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment. I have gone on the glass-bottom boat tour and seen the beauty that surrounds Spring Lake, so when I learned about the opportunity to be a part of the celebration for their 15th anniversary, I was eager to create a successful event.
The art showcase will feature a mimosa bar, brunch bites, live music and art created by local artist. There will be 17 artists, including Rene Perez, Peter Julian and students from around the district. The brunch bites will be from Root Cellar Café, a popular café that San Martians love. Finally, the musicians will be Pleasant St. Quartet and Adam Johnson.
When we were thinking about the goals of the art showcase, the one that was priority was to ensure that the community was reached. Many people assume The Meadows Center it is a Texas State entity that is only open to students, when it is a facility that can be accessed by any one. With the art showcase, the community can enjoy the different interpretations of Spring Lake and learn more about what information The Meadows Center offers about the environment and water.
The Spring Lake Art Showcase will be on Sunday, April 9, 2017 at The Meadows Center from 11 a.m.- 2p.m.. Tickets are available for $10 online or $12 at the door. The code “ART50” brings down online admission price by 50%. To learn more about the event, visit the event Facebook page.
