GRANITE FALLS -- Every Wednesday night beginning this week, Clean Up the River Environment staff and Granite Arts Council members will be hosting a "Drop-in Art Night" from 8 p.m. to midnight for anyone interested in gathering at the K.K. Berge Building in downtown Granite Falls.

The idea is to create one night a week when local community members can connect with creative neighbors, share ideas, or just hang out.

Plans call for hosting a Drop-in Art Night every Wednesday night in April and May until further notice at the newly remodeled and furnished CURE office, which is located on the second floor of the K.K. Berge building. CURE, the Granite Falls Chamber of Commerce, and the Granite Arts Council have pledged to provide Wi-Fi, popcorn and coffee. Drop-in Art Night participants are encouraged to bring your instruments and ideas to discuss along with art projects for collaborative work.

The goal of Drop-in Art Night is to build community and make connections, to foster creativity and dream of new uses for old spaces downtown, to make time and space for collaborative leadership with young people.

Berge Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/KkBerge , or call toll free 1-877-269-2873 or visit with CURE Program Director Sarina Otaibi at the CURE office at 813 Prentice Street in downtown Granite Falls.
